Beaver Meadows Visitor Center, also known as Rocky Mountain National Park Administration Building, is a building in Rocky Mountain National Park that is nationally significant for its architecture. Completed in 1967, it was designed by Taliesin Associated Architects, and was one of the most significant commissions for that firm in the years immediately following the death of founder Frank Lloyd Wright.[3] It was one of the last major projects completed under the Park Service Mission 66 project.

It was declared a National Historic Landmark in 2001.[2][4]
