Yellowstone National Park has begun a series of renovations on the Albright Visitor Center and Museum at Mammoth Hot Springs, near the north entrance to the park.

The building’s upgrades will include a steel frame to protect the building from the area’s seismic activity and accessibility improvements for disabled park visitors. The finished facility will also include new museum exhibits, a book store and a back-country permit office.

Park spokeswoman Amy Bartlett says that visitors will still be able to access all necessary help during construction.
