Great Museum!! Great Price!! Good place to go on a cold, hot or rainy day. Has amazing exhibits on the history of travel to Yellowstone. Has a Great walking tour, and occasionally hosts Ranger talks with some really good information. You can't go wrong for the money here. I definitely give it 5 stars!
Great use of the old train station. Exhibits of early park travel are thorough and include lots of original artifacts including stagecoaches and a Model T touring car. Quite a collection of historic guns also on display.
