the place is full of useful information and very polite rangers ready and eager to answer your questions. I got a lot of very good tips on how to enjoy the canyon, what trails to visit, restaurants, view points, transportation etc.

Standard visitor center. Has all of the amenities and available for everyone. Can be a little crazy with all of the tourists running around.

The staff was a little indifferent but friendly and answered our questions. I had the impression they were on the lookout for people stealing stuff.

Not much in there but a few cool reads and pictures. Coolest thing was the huge 3d wall map that lights up different parts of the river through the Canyon and shows videos of that particular part of it.

I believe you can buy a lifetime NP membership for $10 at the age of 62. Enjoy the parks. Best $10 investment :)
