Project Overview

When Yellowstone National Park decided to remodel its historic Albright Visitor Center, they contracted Pacific Studio for the new exhibits. Exhibits were developed to convey the cultural and natural history of the Northern Range of Yellowstone National Park, as well as alert visitors on safety precautions for themselves and Park wildlife.

Visitors to Albright will experience immersive dioramas featuring Yellowstone wildlife in their natural surroundings via hand-painted murals, sculpted landforms, and reproductions of native flora. Interactive displays explore the Park’s history, thermal dynamics of Mammoth Hot Springs, and wildlife track identification. Artifact cases and mounts showcase a wide variety of ephemera, including a bison skull, military objects, and artist Thomas Moran’s sketchbook. In addition to the natural and cultural history exhibits, an orientation area assists visitors with Park navigation including ADA-compliant tactile maps.
