This was a very interesting museum. They had several films which were extremely informative. It was a little light on actual memorabilia and somewhat heavy on printed displays. The people who worked there were very helpful, conscientious and courteous.

We enjoyed the video of the 1988 fire and earthquake. Many artifacts to see inside and out of the museum.

Take a short trip back into history. They have some nice short movies and displays about the history of Yellowstone, as well as play areas for the little kids-they might get a little bored while you, as an adult, would like to explore more. :)

Learn about the early history of this area, look at exhibits and older films about Yellowstone. Learned much in just a short visit!

Nice museum that outlines the fire and earthquake history of the Yellow stone region. We spent a nice hour or two visiting the museum.
