Visitor Center, Wupatki National Monument
Wupatki Visitor Center
The visitor center was designed and built in sections between 1938 and 1967. Its architecture is representative of a traditional Navajo hogan. It also reflects both National Park Service Rustic and Mission 66 architecture.
Open daily from 9:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. Closed December 25.
The visitor center is near milepost 21 on the Sunset Crater-Wupatki scenic loop road. From Flagstaff, take US 89 north for 12 miles (19km), turn right at sign for Sunset Crater Volcano and Wupatki National Monuments. The visitor center is 21 miles (34km) from this junction.
Ranger talks and guided hikes are scheduled daily during the summer, and occasionally in other seasons. A complete schedule is available on our Interpretive Programs page.
Our museum exhibits feature the stories of people who have lived here through thousands of years. Take time to imagine the past.
