“Rocky Mountain National Park is aw inspiring.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 21, 2011

Beaver Meadows and the other visitor centers have rangers who are very helpful. There are also special events such as guided walks and lectures that enrich a visit. The centers have models of the mountain ranges and a useful collection of maps and books.

“Small Visitor Center with a film”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 8, 2008

This was a small visitor center. Inside there is a desk were you can ask rangers questions, and find out any info you need. There is also a small bookstore. Downstairs there is twenty minute film that plays every half hour. There film was interesting, it talked about what is in the park, and the history of the park. Not far up the road is where the park pay station is located.

“Frank Lloyd Wright gem”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 31, 2008

The visitor center was built after the architect's death by his firm. It incorporates the stone from the area and maximizes the setting. Check out the metal work on the exterior. It was made to complement the landscape. The building is flanked by tall pine. New restrooms have been built near the original structure to serve the large numbers of visitors. A hiker shuttle stop is also present.
The inside of the building has a small auditorium, book shop,restrooms an information desk and a model of the park.
