The Capitol Reef National Park Visitor Center will reopen on Wednesday, March 2 at 9 a.m., after a brief closure to install new exhibits. A ribbon cutting ceremony will take place before welcoming visitors to view the newly installed exhibits.

The exhibits interpret the park’s human history, diverse plant and animal life, and the iconic geology of the Waterpocket Fold. Through photographs and text, interactive features, and videos, visitors come away with a greater understanding of the significance of Capitol Reef National Park. Starting March 4, the visitor center will be open daily from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

This project is an example of your dollars at work. The building renovations in 2021 and the newly installed exhibits utilized recreation fee dollars to improve and update the visitor center.
