The Visitor Center lies at the western end of the Madison River Canyon Earthquake Area. It overlooks Earthquake Lake and has a view of the Madison slide. The Center offers interpretive programs about the 1959 earthquake, which slid half a mountain into the Madison River Canyon creating a giant dam and the lake known as Quake Lake. It also features a working seismograph and displays about geology. The Visitors Center is located halfway between Big Sky and West Yellowstone.
