Worth a stop for the museum and friendly staff. Good prices on attractions. They also have a little gift shop. Easily found in the heart of everything.

The Visitors Center offers a really quick history and pictures of more gracious days in the past. Learn about the beautifully all wooden dining room, the tent city and the many celebrities who have called Hotel Del home for a day or two.

Went into to get a map and came out with a zoo ticket and saved $10 bucks! They also have a museum of the island you can visit with a local docent giving the tours. Very personal and unique!
