Grand Canyon National Park Visitor Center

Culture / Nature / Visitor Center

South Rim, Grand Canyon, AZ

From river to rim, a geologic wonder is revealed.

One of the nation’s premier National Parks, the Grand Canyon’s South Rim attracts visitors from around the world. Exhibits at Grand Canyon Visitor Center provide many of these visitors with their first opportunity to learn about the scale, geology, plants and animals, and human history of the Grand Canyon. Visitors leave inspired, informed, and ready to experience all that the park has to offer.

The Colorado River—the lifeblood of the canyon—is the central theme of the exhibits. A terrazzo river connects a “Science on a Sphere” theater-in-the-round at one end of the building to a movie theater on the other.
