If you order your tickets for the Medora Musical or Pitchfork Fondue or if you need tickets, this is the place to go. The women behind the counter were very helpful and knowledgeable about the area and the things happening in Medora.

If you want to really appreciate the park and Teddy Roosevelt's relationship to the area, this is the place to start. There is a lot of information available, the staff is helpful and if needed you can get more detailed maps too.

WE stopped briefly to get the tickets for the Medora Musical. The visitor center was interesting and was worth visiting.

The film is 17 minutes on the half hour. There is small museum on Roosevelt. Clean restrooms and nice gift shop. Theodora's cabin out back it's fun to see. All free with admission to park.

We visited here a few times to talk about the hiking opportunities in Theodore Roosevelt National Park and were pleased with the help we received. They have a good assortment of postcards and books and other park stuff. We will definitely come back to this ares in the future.

Definitely not the fanciest visitor center for a national park (probably owing to the vastly smaller number of people who visit), but interesting none-the-less. Learned a lot about Teddy Roosevelt and enjoyed seeing his Maltese Cross cabin.

Closed on the off season, it's February and 60 degrees out. We took a trip up from Rapid City SD, and they were closed. That's usually our first stop when traveling. Very disappointing. I'm sure it's a great place when they are open.
