“Not just a train station!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 May 2014

Well worth the minimal fee charge. Has alot of history of the town and YNP. We watched both movies - fire of 1988 and earthquake. Very well done. Spent a couple of hours here and well worth our time. I would reccomend it to others as a must do.

“For a tiny museum this place packs in the info”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 October 2013

Great movies and info on local events. Lots of things for kids to touch and experience. We watched movies of the 1988 Yellowstone fire and the 1959 earthquake...fascinating! Admission price low.

“Interesting”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 October 2013

The displays tell a good story of the early days of Yellowstone. The park was closed during our visit (thanks federal government!) so this was as close as we could get.
