Nice way to start a tour of the Canyon area. The movie lasts about 20 mins. and was really well done. It supplied myself and my family with the back round of the canyon, which made tour much more interesting.

This is where you need to purchase your tickets to enter the Grand Canyon National Park. There is also an expansive gift shop with lots of "must have's" for your GC experience.

I really enjoyed this capture of Wesley Powell's exploration of the canyon. I was actually moved to tears by the majesty the film captured.

If it's a rainy day, or if you're tired at the end of a long day, the IMAX movie is OK. It's not bad, just not great or knock your socks off. Some of the footage is excellent, some is not as crisp as we've...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.
