Definitely stop by the numerous visitor's centers throughout Yellowstone. Not only do they provide books, maps, gifts, postcards but park rangers are available to answer any questions. Each center has a different themed display/museum on Yellowstone, such as animal life, the fire, etc. Admission - free.
The center shown is at Mammoth Hot Springs and the building is part of the Fort Yellowstone Historic District. It was once the Bachelor Officers Quarters built in 1909.
See a bison up close. This majestic animal, native only to the plains of North America, was driven to the verge of extinction in the late 19th century. "Buffalo Bill" was reputed to have killed 4200 bisons in a 17-month period. Thanks to conservation efforts, bisons again freely roam in protected parklands. Yellowstone is part of their refuge.
is the Chapel built in 1913 of native stone, slate roof and oak furnishings. The chapel is still in use today although the doors were locked when we were there.
