Carlsbad Caverns National Park Sights


Carlsbad Caverns National Park Visitor Center

Carlsbad Caverns National Park Visitor Center Review

Within this user-friendly facility at the top of an escarpment, a 75-seat theater offers engrossing films and ranger programs about the different types of caves. Exhibits offer a primer on bats, geology, wildlife, and the early tribes and settlers that once lived in and passed through the Carlsbad Caverns area. Friendly rangers staff an information desk, where tickets and maps are sold. A gift shop and bookstore also are on the premises.
