The Galapagos National Park opened a new Interpretation Center in Puerto Baquerizo Moreno on San Cristobal Island in March 1998. The opening of the center represents the first phase in the Interpretation and Environment Education Project for the Galapagos Island, funded by the Government of Spain.

Other phases of the project will further develop a range of interpretative elements for the center, providing information on Galapagos and San Cristobal in particular through a guided, interpretation of the exhibits and materials, and educate Park and Station personnel and naturalist tour guides.

The Center will focus primarily on the history of the archipelago, from its volcanic origins to the present. Two interpretation panels, representing the natural and cultural history of the archipelago are linked together in chronological order. The center includes a small outdoor stadium, meeting rooms and audio-visual equipment for the entire Cristobal community to enjoy. The Center serves as both an interpretative locus, and a community gathering place.
