Destination Yellowstone — an interactive, educational exhibit — was unveiled Monday at Bozeman Yellowstone International Airport.

The exhibit includes an 800-square-foot store; a 55-inch multimedia interactive exhibit loaded with facts; a wall that highlights Yellowstone’s most iconic wildlife; two 22-inch video kiosks, which include a video narrated by Tom Brokaw, and numerous ranger-led park videos; a web-based, LCD park map display; and a live streaming webcam of Old Faithful geyser.

“Destination Yellowstone is a great asset to the Bozeman Yellowstone International Airport,” said Dan Wenk, Yellowstone National Park superintendent. “These new exhibits will provide more understanding of Yellowstone National Park and enrich many travelers’ visits to Yellowstone and the Bozeman area.”

The exhibit is the result of a partnership among the Yellowstone Park Foundation, Yellowstone Association, Bozeman Yellowstone International Airport and Yellowstone National Park. The foundation provided $150,000 for the exhibits, and the association came up with $170,000 for the store and information desk.
