Fascination with the Yellowstone area began with the first trappers' incredulous tales of gushing geysers and gurgling mud pots. Since being established as the world's first National Park in 1872, curious travelers have ventured from every corner of the world to experience this place called "Wonderland." 

Thanks to everyone who visited our Museum during the 2016 season. The Museum closed on October 2. Please join us in 2017 when the Museum reopens on Saturday May 13 with new exhibits celebrating the 100th Anniversary of the first White Motor Coach Company's touring buses being used in Yellowstone.
