Work started on the £18.5m building last January, around 11 years after the previous one was destroyed in a fire.
The long-awaited replacement takes the form of an underground complex with a sloping grass roof hiding it from view.
It features a range of exhibitions which explain how the world-famous coastal attraction's basaltic columns formed. It also tells the legend of Finn McCool.
Over 600,000 visitors come to see the Unesco World Heritage Site in Co Antrim every year and designers hope the new National Trust centre will enhance their experience.
Project Director, Graham Thompson said: "This reflects our commitment to the tourism industry and Northern Ireland confidently moving on.
"This is a significant milestone for the National Trust in Northern Ireland and is the culmination of years of working in partnership with stakeholders in the community, the business sector, and government and political arenas."
The new centre has been carefully planned to integrate into the local environment - even the grass seed from the area was combed to provide a compatible variety for the roof.
Visitors can go on top to enjoy a stunning panoramic view of the North Coast landscape.
Meanwhile over 100 members of staff and volunteers will be on hand at the state of the art centre to talk about the geological phenomenon of the causeway.
