The staff was so friendly and engaging we ended up doing their Junior Ranger program and watching the movie which meant they had to close 30 minutes late. We kept trying to speed through but they were so accommodating. Absolutely fantastic. The... More

We stopped in the visitor center and it was such a nice place! Great exhibits and super friendly staff. My son earned his Junior Ranger badge - this is one of the only visitor centers in the NPS that offers a badge for just visiting the center. Definitely stop in if you are nearby!

Our ranger was a young female, very smart, passionate about Grasslands. She talked for half an hour about the different grasslands sites, how to use them, what kind of wildlife, fossils they had etc. She walked my wife thru a book on hawks to identify one my wife saw, and talked enthusiastically about western magpies. We talked to her before... More

This is definitely worth a stop after you walk through Wall Drugs craziness. A nice visitor center for the National Grasslands.

Staff was very personable, helpful, and friendly. They were the first ones in a national park to call attention to a senior pass that can be used at all national parks for a one-time fee! Loved the visitor center and the area around it!

We visited the center while visiting Wall and came away with knowledge and appreciation for the grasslands, not only in that area but other locations as well. Highly recommend the center to all visiting the area.

Everything you wanted to know about grasslands but were afraid to ask! Forest service facility with lots of history and info for those in the know. Something different and out of the ordinary.
