  • Nice selection! The lady running the cash register was amazing! Great conversation while she helped me picking or a souvenir photo...
  • A very interesting and unusual building. Pictures of its history in the museum as well as other stories of the canyon. Great view of the canyon and Bright Angel Trail.
  • Interesting place, bit overpriced in the gift shop but nothing that would be expected. Lot's of cool tidbits about the history of the canyon.
  • I've been to the Grand Canyon so many times and never actually stopped in the kolb studio because I figured it was just another tourist trap, but when I went in there was a whole section downstairs,kind d of like a museum dedicated to the kolb brothers and all that they had done. It was super neat,i really enjoyed it!even my 8yr old was loving it!
  • cool building where instead of building up, they built down the canyon. interesting museum and gift shop too.
