The Bryce Canyon Visitor Center should be one of your first stops when visiting Bryce Canyon National Park. Here you can obtain driving and hiking directions beyond those available on this website, weather forecasts, a current schedule of Park Ranger guided programs, Junior Ranger booklets, and information on area services including lodging, dining and other attractions.

While at the Visitor Center you will want to see our new awarding winning film entitled "Shadows of Time." The film is 20-minutes long and plays on the hour and half hour throughout the day. Also take the time to explore our exhibit (under construction as of April 2016) and our bookstore.

Trying to plan your visit? Questions? Comments? Stop at the Visitor Center where our park staff will be happy to accommodate you. The Bryce Canyon Visitor Center is open everyday except Christmas day, December 25th. During the summer our hours are 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. with reduced hours during the winter.
