Yellowstone Art and Photography Center

Yellowstone National Park

This historic building was constructed in 1927 as one of the original Haynes photo shops. The Haynes family operated 13 photo shops in Yellowstone and produced 55 million postcards and the park's earliest guidebooks, some of which are on display. Displays of historic art sit alongside the work-in-progress of current artists-in-residence.
