 The park's visitor center museum room will be closed between June 8, 2013, and August 31, 2013, as the park prepares to install new exhibits.

These new exhibits will replace the existing ones, installed in 1962, when the visitor center was opened.

The visitor center will remain opened during these dates, and the park's orientation film will continue to be shown daily.

We apologize for the inconvenience.
