In this paper, we study the birational geometry of the Hilbert scheme P2[n] of n-points on P2. We discuss the stable base locus decomposition of the effective cone and the corresponding birational models. We give modular interpretations to the models in terms of moduli spaces of Bridgeland semi-stable objects. We construct these moduli spaces as moduli spaces of quiver representations using G.I.T. and thus show that they are projective. There is a precise correspondence between wall-crossings in the Bridgeland stability manifold and wall-crossings between Mori cones. For n ≤ 9, we explicitly determine the walls in both interpretations and describe the corresponding flips and divisorial contractions.
