About Visitors Centers

When are Visitors Centers open?

Visitors Centers associated with a particular attraction are typically open during the attraction's hours of operation. The hours of operation for a Tourism Visitors Center tend to be influenced by seasonal fluctuations in tourism. During the busy season, a Tourism Visitors Center is more likely to be open during extended business hours, including weekends.

How are Visitors Centers funded?

A Visitors Center that is part of a particular attraction or company is usually funded as part of that entity's operations. State Visitors Centers are typically funded by the state's tourism agency. Tourism Visitors Centers are usually funded and operated by a Convention and Visitors Bureau, local economic development agency, merchants' association, or by a combination of several entities.

What kind of security is in place at Visitors Centers?

The type and extent of security is determined largely by the purpose and location of the Visitors Center. A Visitors Center that contains valuable artifacts, such as artwork or historical items, will likely have higher security. Visitors Centers at government buildings and other places of political importance are also more likely to have a higher level of security.
