A small exhibit on the geology of the area. Really enjoyed the 2 movies shown here about Yellowstone and the animals. Worth the time to watch both. From here it is about a 1 mile walk to view Yellowstone Canyon and the Lower Falls.

We stopped at the Visitor's Center on our way out of the park.We were very glad that we took the time to do it. It had wonderful explanations of the geography of the area and how Yellowstone was formed.

I love going through this visitor center. The films are excellent and educational. There is a bear spray rental right outside. The restrooms are large and clean. Big plus!

Nice visitor center. It's two stories with a free museum, restrooms, and gift shop. If you get to the Canyon section of YNP - make sure you stop!

As a total National Park Nerd, I never drive pass a Visitor Center without stopping. I love this one for the giant, interactive topo map that really helps you see the big picture of the amazing landscape you're driving through inside Yellowstone Park. Also love...More

While much smaller this visitor still has plenty of displays and information to consume. Worth taking the time to wander through and see what is available.
