This is a newer building for the geyser experience. Self guided display area, helpful guides and knowledgeable Park Rangers with a well done interpretive movie experience. Good place for viewing during inclement weather.

Expected a curio shop, but in fact the staff are full of information about all the park, weather expectations, road conditions. Also just before Old Faithful performed, a lady gave a 15 minute talk about the whole park, geology etc. Very interesting, Thank you!!

This is a very educational display about geysers in general and especially Old Faithful. Visit on your way to or from Old Faithful.

If you are going to see "Old Faithful", then you are first going to be passing through the visitor center from the parking lot. This was our 2nd trip here in two years. Both times were very busy, even in the fall. The parking lot...More
