Norris Geyser Basin Museum
The museum is a historic building on the ridge overlooking the Norris Geyser Basin. The Norris Museum was built in 1930 as a "trailside museum" to educate visitors about Yellowstone. After automobiles replaced stagecoaches as the main transportation through the park, people no longer had guides provided to them. Nowadays, park rangers staff the museum and provide information and assistance to visitors. There are exhibits with bird specimens and info on geothermal activity and life in thermal areas. The Norris Geyser Basin Museum has been designated a National Historic Landmark since 1982.
