The visitor center is right next to the world's most famous geyser - Old Faithful. Educational displays are interesting for adults and children. You get to undersand hydrothermal sites.

Enjoy the nice, clean restrooms, after having to use the facilities elsewhere in the park. You can find out the eruption times for Old Faithful, and best of all, get your National Parks passport stamped here!
