Capulin Volcano Visitor Center
The Visitor Center, located at the base of Capulin Volcano, serves as the park's main educational center and an interactive learning area for visitors of all ages. In addition to an information desk and bookstore, the Visitor Center contains exhibits, a touch table, and dioramas about geology, natural history and the human history of Capulin Volcano. A small auditorium also provides opportunities for ranger-led programs and video presentations on a variety of topics.
This 10 minute film shown in the Visitor Center auditorium details the story of Capulin's eruption and the surrounding Raton-Clayton Volcanic Field. The film features the area’s dramatic volcanic landscape and the unique habitat, rich with life, existing on this mountain of ash and cinder.
