On Tuesday, November 1, autumn hours at the Buffalo Bill Center of the West change to 10 a.m.–5 p.m. daily. The schedule remains in effect through the month of November. On December 1, winter hours of 10 a.m.–5 p.m. Thursday–Sunday (closed Monday – Tuesday – Wednesday) return, continuing through February 28.
Fall and winter visitors to the Center of the West enjoy an up-close-and-personal look at the live birds of the Draper Museum Raptor Experience each day at 1 p.m. At these “Relaxing with Raptors” sessions, the birds appear with their handlers, who share information about the raptors and answer any questions about them from visitors.
As the National Park Service’s 100th Anniversary wraps up its 2016 celebration, the Center’s salute to Yellowstone continues with four exhibitions that remain on display. During this quieter time of year, Center staffers remind visitors to take in these Park-related exhibits: Invisible Boundaries: Exploring Yellowstone’s Great Animal Migrations (through December 4); Yellowstone Discovered: William Henry Jackson’s Lost Prints Reveal the Park for America; Putting Yellowstone on the Map; and Inspiring Sights: Yellowstone through Artists’ Eyes.
