Arches Visitor Center#6 in Best Things To Do in Arches National Park
Price & Hours
Start your park experience at Arches Visitor Center, located just a mile inside the entrance. Recent visitors call the center a "treasure trove of information." Along with exhibits inside and outside the center detailing the park's history, geology, plants and animals, on-site rangers can help you decide where to go and offer advice on trails and staying safe. There's also a bookstore and gift shop. Don't miss the park's film, "Window in Time," which plays every 30 minutes. Kids can pick up a junior ranger activity book and learn how to earn a junior ranger badge. This is also an ideal place to fill up your water bottles; water and restrooms are available 24 hours a day.
The visitor center, which is accessible for free with park admission, is located just inside the park, near the main entrance and is open daily (except for Christmas Day). Hours vary. From April through September, it is open from 7:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. From October through early November, it is open from 8 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. In November, it is open from 8 to 4:30 p.m. and from December through February it is open from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. For more information, check out the NPS website.
