The Amazing Kolb Brothers, A Grand Life at the Grand Canyon exhibit continues through April in Kolb Studio, located in the historic Grand Canyon Village on the South Rim.  Open daily from 9:00am to 5:00pm, this exhibit is free and open to the public, and an essential part of any visit to the Grand Canyon.

The Kolb Brothers are legend at the Grand Canyon for their pioneering spirits and treasure trove of photographs.  Ellsworth and Emery arrived at the South Rim in the dawning years of the 20th century, long before the Grand Canyon was designated a national park.

Stories of their adventures, their family, and their enduring photography business on the rim are told for the first time in exhibit form and displayed in their historic studio.

Presented by the Grand Canyon Association, Northern Arizona University’s Cline Library Special Collections and Archives, and Grand Canyon National Park.  Additional funding is provided by Pink Jeep Tours Las Vegas and Sedona, and Ms. Penny Schultz.

At first glance, Kolb Studio is just a house perched on the rim of the Grand Canyon, but if you look behind the doors or see it from the Bright Angel Trail after a long hike from the river, you realize it is much more than that.  It is the place where the Kolb Brothers created a lasting legacy of adventure, family love and amazing Grand Canyon photography that will last as long as the Canyon itself.
