“Excellent hands-on exhibits”
Reviewed 7 July 2014

This updated visitor center is a perfect place to get somee deeper insight into the wonders of Yellowstone. There are some good hands-on volcanic exhibits that kept the kids engaged while the grown ups enjoyed not being in the car. I was impressed with the variety and the quality of this education center.

“Medium size but with a good exhibit.”
Reviewed 20 July 2013

Beautiful facility, films, ranger desk, association shop, and exhibits. Nice place to start your visit if new to the area, or to check in for where animals have been seen. Support the Association Bookstore--they do great work. Rangers are often volunteers, and their expertise varies.

“best in the park”
Reviewed 20 June 2013

This education center was the best on we went to in the park. There was a great variety of things to look at, listen to, and read about. It told about mostly the volcanic history of the park which I was very interested in and not just the canyon.

“Geyser Learning at its Best!”
Reviewed 26 December 2012

Coming from the flat lands of Kansas, we had only a basic understanding of the geysers and the geological landscape of Yellowstone. Even the teens enjoyed the displays. Great way to take a break from the sulfur winds and mosquitoes.
