  • Be sure and go here first. You need the information before walking the area. The films are good also.  more »
  • Hand on items for the children. Very informative and interesting displays. Worth checking out when seeing Old Faithful.  more »
  • We visited the center to speak with the rangers about the area around Old Faithful and get an idea of driving distances. The rangers were extremely helpful.  more »

  • I've been here 3 separate visits, and in many other National Parks, from Maine to California. This is the most educational, interesting, complete and non-insulting one I"ve ever seen, anywhere!!! I didn't want to leave! My husband has taught Earth Science and all levels of Physics for high school, including AP, after a career in telecommunications engineering, and HE has been fascinated by everything he's seen, especially the Old Faithful exhibits. There are parts you read, parts you hear and watch, and really well-designed and executed panels that are interested and fun for everyone! WHAT MORE DO YOU NEED TO KNOW???
  • Really nice education center and store. A must see if visiting the park. Right next to old faithful that goes off around every 91 minutes and a great easy to navigate boardwalk to see a lot of interesting geothermal vents. Great place to visit. The cafe close by does mass feedings ( not recommended) or walk across the street and get served at a nice table in quet for less money.
  • Very nice center, helpful rangers. Well signed for what time Old Faithful (and other geysers) are expected to go off. There is a very cool and informative science exhibition hall - sort of like an interactive museum. Would definitely recommend kids do the junior ranger program!
  • Was very informative and engaging even for children. Not very big but just enough information provided about the natural phenomenon that is Yellowstone and it many hydrothermal attractions. Good location as well being amongst shops and restaurants. It allowed for a nice stop to stretch and relax between driving from different attractions.
  • The site of the (dare I say legendary?) Old Faithful. The visitor center includes educational exhibits, movies, and information about the park and surrounding areas. They have a pretty accurate (approximate) time for the next eruption of Old Faithful. Was a good time with the family.
