This visitor center is very impressive for a small town. Friendly staff is there to answer any questions. Brochures and guide books line almost every wall in easy to find categories.

This is an outstanding Visitors' Centre not only in the warm welcome the advisor gives you, but also in wisdom of her suggestions. The tours she outlined for me provided exciting and enjoyable days out - in contrast to some centres which present you with long gruelling days of a dozen stopovers. There is a generous collection of brochures and... More

Volunteer who helped us figure out our plans was terrific. Lots of pamphlets, maps and information. We would not known about the neat architecture to watch for without chatting with the gentleman who was volunteering that day. Go here especially if you have limited time as they can help you sort out your visit with suggestions.

We stopped by the visitors centre on our way into Silver City. The lady there was most helpful with information etc. She helped with finding us a room at the Murray Hotel for that night and also let us use her phone to make a reservation in Tombstone for the next night. She was most helpful.

As in most visitor centers, they provide helpful information about area sightseeing and services. One wall had brochures with local destinations and another a display with history/photos of the area. The woman behind the counter was knowledgeable and friendly.
