The Education Center is located right next to the Geyser itself and is a must see to complement your visit to Old Faithful. Since the geyser is quite predictable, stop by before or after to learn a lot.

Cool place to learn more about the area. They have a kids education area as well. No food or drinks allowed. Great view of old faithful as well as listed times it will go off.

If you are driving through Yellowstone in the 2nd half of October, is the parking lot at the Old Faithful Visitor Center large enough to park if you are towing a 30' travel trailer?
