The visitor center was not open when we went. The canyon it self does not have very good sign to direct you places like to the canyon.

This visitor center is well located, but doesn’t have a huge amount of information about the park. It is so crowded you have to line up to talk to a ranger. They could probably cut down on those lines by having some information posted on...More

Lots of visitors on a very cold and snowy day meant long lines for everything, especially bathrooms. Why places like this don't put in twice the ladies' facilities vs mens', I will never know. Aside from that, the Visitor Center is really nicely setup, the...More

The IMAX theater shows only one 30 minute show of the Grand Canyon, at $12/person. There's a Pizza hut and a gift shop. Not worth our time.

Imax on the canyon and a great gift shop without the canyon crowds. Worth the stop to get some trinkets for the gang back home. Pizza Hut if you are hungry too.

We saw the IMAX movie and enjoyed it. It is a much cheaper way to see the inside of the canyon than going in a helicopter. The gift shop was very nice and they also had a Pizza Hut so you could grab a bite...More

Your best bet is to get your Canyon park pass from there then ask where to go for the bus. Even if you don't get your pass from there, ask at the park desk inside. They were very helpful.
