Albright Visitor Center

Situated in the the middle of the Mammoth Historical District, in the northwest corner of Yellowstone National Park near the North Entrance. The buildings of Albright Visitor Center were originally built for officer housing when the U.S. calvary was stationed at "Fort Yellowstone" to protect the new national park prior to the formation of the National Park Service in 1916.

The center includes exhibits on the early exploration and formation of Yellowstone National Park and the National Park Service, a bookstore, films, and several exhibits. Of note are the Jackson Gallery, which displays original photographs by William Henry Jackson, and the Moran Gallery, featuring reproductions of watercolor sketches by William Moran.
