Craig Thomas Discovery and Visitor Center

The Craig Thomas Discovery and Visitor Center welcomes and orients visitors to the opportunities and experiences that Grand Teton National Park offers, educates about the park's unique cultural and natural history, and inspires through stories of conservation and stewardship. Highlights include a children's layer of exhibits, a video river symbolizing the Snake River winding through the center showing images of the park throughout the seasons, and an art gallery.

Three main themes featuring people, place, and protection are explored through the center’s interpretive displays, which were designed by Ralph Appelbaum Associates. Visitors can explore a large relief model of the park that uses technology to demonstrate glacier movement and animal migration, touchable objects and artifacts, children’s exhibits, a streaming in-floor video, and a photomural tribute to Teton mountaineers that utilizes the center’s 30-foot walls.
