Glacier has three main visitor centers. At each, you will find knowledgable staff ready to answer questions and help in trip planning. You can also pick up park publications and maps at the information desks. Check the Ranger-led Activity Schedule for dates and times of programs given at each location throughout summer.
Each visitor center has a bookstore run by Glacier National Park Conservancy.
Hours vary with the seasons, so check the Operating Hours & Seasons page for specific information about each visitor center and other ranger stations and offices.
