Checking out Yellowstone animals--in the Draper

The Draper Natural History Museum opened to the public on June 4, 2002, to become the newest addition to what was then the Buffalo Bill Historical Center, now the Buffalo Bill Center of the West. The Draper Museum became the first American natural history museum established in the 21st century, and it has garnered international acclaim for its innovative, informative, and inspiring exhibit experiences. Beyond the walls of these exhibits, the Draper Natural History Museum is the premier scientific resource for the Greater Yellowstone region in ecology, natural history, conservation, and wildlife biology. Here are some of the animal specimens from the Yellowstone area represented in the Draper Museum--a great way to gear up for your visit to the Park, or to learn more about everything you saw there!
