There is a Visitor's Cnter about 3 miles from Chinle at the entrance to the Canyon De Chelly National Monument. The Visitor's Center has a museum with regional books and cultural demonstrations, local artist exhibits and a ranger-staffed information desk. There are also special programs and services available like ranger-conducted activities including morning coffee at the Visitor Center Hogan for orientation, daily canyon hikes, natural history programs at Junction Overlook and campfire programs at the Campground Amphitheater. The Navajo people also celebrate Navajo Day every Saturday with activities relating to Navajo history and culture. These services are generally available every day May through September. This should be your first stop on your visit.
