Fodor's Expert Review Monument Valley Visitor Center

Monument Valley Navajo Tribal Park Museum/Gallery

The handsome center contains an extensive crafts shop and exhibits devoted to ancient and modern Native American history, including a display on the World War II Navajo Code Talkers. Most of the independent guided group tours, which leave from the center, use enclosed vans and charge about $75 per person for 2½ to 3 hours; private tours are also often available, starting around $150 for up to two people. You can generally find Navajo guides—who will escort you to places that you are not allowed to visit on your own—in the center or at the booths in the parking lot. It adjoins the stunning View Hotel (and restaurant), which sits on a gradual rise overlooking the valley and its magnificent red-rock monoliths, with big-sky views in every direction.
