The facility does a good job of presenting information about the canyon and the activities available. Two of our party selected the mule ride on the canyon rim and thoroughly enjoyed it. Center was busy but it was good time of year to go as not as crowded as summer.

I always keep in mind that experiences shared by previous visitors help the visitors planning to visit and stay at a place of global interest - The Grand Canyon. The Information center provided all the information sought by my son.

The place was packed with visitors but we did get to view the movie about the Grand Canyon. They also have lots of wonderful Ranger lead walks and talks!

I highly recommend everyone stop at visitor center at beginning of trip. Great place to make plans for remainder of trip. Parking can be tight. If full, just park in another lot and ride bus up to center.

Make sure you stop in the info center, catch the movie and learn about the bus system in the park. There are visual displays explaining different parts of the park within the building. It helped us plan our day.
