This is a pretty typical small town visitor center/museum. There are friendly folks who man the desk and they have a small gift shop and a small museum. They have information and brochures on all of the four corners area attractions. The exhibits in the museum show artifacts from Blanding history. Very similar to other small museums throughout the American... More

Of all my interactions in the US, I was particularly touched by the level of friendliness and knowledge displayed by the elderly gentlemen at the center (whose name I unfortunately did not get). Due to his efforts we were able to experience Butler Wash ruins, Natural Bridges Monument and Moki Dugway, which otherwise we would not have known about. He... More

Having lived in Blanding part of my life I'd never thought about going into the Visitors Center. A relative came to visit and wanted to get some nice commemorative items for gifts. Not finding much around town, the Visitors Center was recommended. I was surprised at the quality of the displays and the information available. We found the gift items... More

The gal at the desk was so helpful it created a bit of a wait but when it was our turn, she pulled out maps and gave us great suggestions for hiking with a dog. An unexpected added attraction was the small museum featuring local familes that settled the area.

Super friendly place that seems to have put a lot of effort into its displays. We called in just for the bathrooms but picked up a great map of Utah which I wish we had had earlier in the trip. The information / museum is really well put together and I learned a lot about how modern day locals view... More

After getting no real information at the Moab visitor center, we decided to stop here to get information on Muley Point, Gooseneck state park and valley of gods. The staff member that we interacted with - Steve, was simply amazing. He was extremely helpful and knowledgeable. Once we mentioned some of the points, he got us brochure for all those... More

It was easy to pull of the road into their parking lot. We were looking for suggestions for an evening drive, the one we got turned out not to be too exciting. We did get a town map and a friendly chat.

Great visitor's center and I would consider it a must do when in a Blanding. The woman on duty when we went in was fabulous. Full of enthusiasm and knowledge of this fascinating area, she charted out some great ideas to fill our next three days. Definitely stop in there when you're staying in Blanding or just rolling through town.

Being moderately prepared to visit off the beaten track sites around the area, I was still getting essential information from the staff on preparing my trips. Very helpful with informative useful maps and description of sites! Highly recommended.
