The Nederland Visitors Center was built at the corner of First Street and Highway 119 in 1988, opening in August of that year. Most of the labor and materials were donated to this project, which has proven to be a very popular stop for tourists wanting to learn more about the area. The Town of Nederland and the Nederland Area Chamber of Commerce fund it jointly, and it is staffed completely by volunteers who are residents of our area.

Over 100,000 visitors have been helped since the center opened. They have come from all fifty states and as many foreign countries—several hundred each year from the Netherlands alone. They appreciate being helped by friendly volunteers who enjoy welcoming visitors to our town. We do our best to answer a myriad of questions, especially about driving routes, lodging, restaurants, and recreational opportunities available for miles in any direction, and many arrange their trip to take advantage of them.

From May to October we are open 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. seven days a week, depending upon the availability of volunteers. During the remainder of the year we are open on weekends, except during bad weather. We sell a variety of maps, postcards, books, and T-shirts. The volunteers you meet enjoy living here and know the opportunities that await visitors to our area. They can answer most of your questions about how to get the most out of your visit to this most beautiful part of our country.
