Great place to stop and take in the history of the park and how it all began. There is a beautiful museum displaying how it got started, and a gift shop.

If you begin your trip at the beginning of the Skyline Drive in Front Royal, Va, then this is a good place to start. There is a small exhibit, and gift shop. Speak to the rangers and they will steer you in the right direction.

Very few Ranger classes/seminars on the map, maybe due to being so late in the year. Facility does have some interesting films about the park. Nice selection of souveniers here. Rather small visitors center though.

Stopped in for clean restrooms, drive tidbits, and a fantastic view on a windy morning. The place was informative and got my Shenandoah NP stamp.

A nice little place to learn a bit about the park and take a break from hiking or driving. There is a small gift shop with Park items like tee shirts and patches and you can get your NP passport stamped too.

We loved the beautiful displays of the area and of how the Skyline Dr was built. The three movies (playing at this time) were worth watching and contained much history.
