Yellowstone park opening new research/history center

Yellowstone park opening new research/history center

By Associated Press
A new center housing Yellowstone National Park's 5.3 million-piece collection of artifacts and archives is set to open this week in Gardiner, Mont., near the park's northern entrance. It will give the public one-stop access to items previously scattered in the park. The Yellowstone Heritage and Research Center plans an open house Wednesday, with tours of the $6.4 million building and glimpses into the extensive archives, rare book room, library and museum collection storage. Some pieces, such as Thomas Moran watercolors, will be pulled for view from storage, but exhibits aren't expected to go up until August, when a more formal opening is planned, said Colleen Curry, supervisory museum curator.
