The Visitor Information Center is the starting point for any trip to Pullman, which became a National Monument in 2015. It is located on the site of the former Pullman Arcade Building. The structure contains exhibits curated by the Historic Pullman Foundation on the history of the Town of Pullman, the Pullman Family, the development of Pullman Sleeping Cars, the Pullman Strike of 1894 and the Pullman Free School of Manual Training (today Gwendolyn Brooks College Prep). On the north wall of the visitor center is a 1996 mural interpretation of the former Pullman Arcade Building. The mural is by students from the American Academy of Art.
