My children were more into the science behind the geysers than Old Faithful itself! There are interactive displace to make learning geology fun for the kids. Very interesting to the adults as well.

This is an amazing natural phenomenon and one that you must see at least once! There are many chances to see this as it writs several times each day and those times are prominently posted! Kids will be fascinated as well.

The people at the visitor center were friendly, helpful, and had lots of good information to distribute. The new facility is gorgeous. And members of the Yellowstone Association get discounts on purchases in the store.

This is an excellent place to learn about Yellowstone. Learned a lot of useful information here.Old faithful could be seen out the back door. They had a clock that told you when to expect the next show from Old Faithful! Nice gift shop too!

Saw it for the first time when I was 10 and I never forgot it. I really loved watching it explode. Don't expect to much and you will be surprised. Remember it's nature and not fully predictable, be willing to wait...

I'd say this is an above-average Educational Center, but could be better if they'd be more specific in their exhibits where you can go in the Park to see specific natural elements/sights.
