Great place to stop!
Oct 2020
Nice place to start before visiting the National Parks in the area. We enjoyed the displays they had inside, especially the one showing the topography of the mountains in the area. Helped get us oriented. We purchased a Passport Book and took it to all the parks and monuments we visited during our 2-week visit out west and got a stamp for each of the places we visited.

Beautiful building and very nice display even with COVID
Oct 2020
This site is well marked from the road and easy to get to from the main park road. There is a large parking lot with plenty of parking. They have managed the COVID arrangements very well. They have arranged it with one entrance and one exit . Dots on the floor to specify 6 foot distance. The 3 d map, gift shop and ranger booth are all open. The view out the window looks directly out onto the Tetons. This is a great first stop for seeing the park and I highly recommend it for people to prepare to see the park.

Might have been nice

We stopped by the visitor's center, my usual plan any time visiting a national park to collect information. Although the center was open all the exhibits were closed off and there were only a couple of rangers available for answering questions.

Not 100% open due to Covid
Aug 2020
A beautiful building and the store is open along with windows for information. Unfortunately it is not open for videos, etc due to Covid. Nice clean restrooms available. A fun, easy 1 mile out and back trail located behind the center.

Not all visitor centers are must stops but the Craig Thomas & visitor center in Moose, Wyoming is. It is located in Grand Teton National Park and opened in 2007 so it is a relatively new visitor center.

The center is an interactive venue featuring the parks natural history, western artifacts, a ranger information station, maps of all the trails, displays of early explores, settlers and mountaineers. They have an extensive souvenir shop. You can also get your passport stamped here. A 15 minute film is shown in the 154 seat theater on a loop which is well done.

The Ranger program includes an information center, a scavenger hunt for young kids who are rewarded with a wooden badge for completing the hunt, booklets to fill out to earn patches and scheduled ranger talks .Back country permits can be obtained here, as well as, detailed descriptions of all the the available trails in the Grand Teton National Park. Something unexpected was a demonstration by a ranger on how to use bear spray.

A bonus to visiting the Craig Thomas Discovery Center is the photographic views of the Grand Tetons.

Great parking
Jul 2020 • Family
Places to hike while seeing the mountains and plenty of parking for long RVs and cars alike. Beautiful flowers also surround the area.

Really Good Visitor Center
Jun 2019
This is a new, modern visitor center, offering some history with perspective, from ancient to recent. There is a model of the park, a film, and a "movie screen' in the floor which is quite cool to see. There is an opportunity to learn about park animals, their habitats, food and what their fur feels like. And of course this is a good place to ask questions and gather information to help plan your visit around the park.
