The Canyon Gallery & Visitor Center
Built of native stone near the top of the canyon in 1933 by the Civilian Conservation Corps, its large windows overlook the canyon, providing a spectacular view of its splendor. The Gallery boasts historical video productions, archeological and nature exhibits, and is beautifully arranged with Southwest art for sale, handmade Native American pottery, handmade Navajo, Zuni and Santo Domingo silver and turquoise jewelry, handmade hunting knives, and a large selection of hard to find regional tools that are Comanche and Kiowa beaded, t-shirts and hats.
Directions to The Canyon Gallery and Visitor Center:
One-half mile beyond the park entrance, at the “El Coronado Lodge” sign, turn right into and through the parking lot where you’ll then turn right again and proceed down the hill to the Visitor’s Center.
