Went in to get touring info. Ranger friendly but didn’t advise us that the road to Natural Bridge is rouge and I believe dangerous, especially to cars. A couple of interesting exhibits

A stop to purchase a pass for Death Valley National Park. A lot of information on hand, and knickknacks to buy. Not a big selection of food to purchase though.

It was open a month ago, when we were there. Our tour guide did not mention anything about the center being (or to be) closed.
