On our last trip there was an educational video and talk about wolves which we thoroughly enjoyed. We love the gift shop too.

Traveling with children? This is an excellent place to take them to stretch their legs. I was here with elderly parents and they enjoyed it very much. Soak up the history of the Yellowstone region. It is worth taking the time.

This is a great stop before hiking around the geyser area. Nice information, a gift shop, and good bathroom facilities.

A great stop to get a clear understanding of the geyser, and a general overview of the park. The staff in the area are very knowledgeable and are more than happy to answer any questions. It has things that can entertain all ages from those difficult to please teens, young children and grumpy old me like me...

This is a really great update to the old visitors center. The kids will have fun for at least an hour, or until you are ready to drag them on to the next event. The movie is great with crazy great photos of the park and wonderful sound. Don't miss the geyser inside the explore area for kids

Like most National Park Visitor Centers that we visited, the staff here was most accommodating, interesting, knowledgeable and helpful. The displays were topical and well done. Plan to spend some time here learning the area and what it is that you are seeing.
