"Visitors Center" is correct as is "Mens clothing" because they are using the adjectival form, not the possessive. We have this argument at the newspaper I work for all the time when we talk about "boys basketball." "Visitors" is an adjective describing what kind of center it is, not a possessive saying who owns the center.
Then it should not be "visitors", it should be "visitor"

Apostrophes matter. Consider these sentences: I am wont to cant, but I won't, because it can't change your mind. My dogs flee from my neighbors, and from my neighbor's dogs' fleas. You're entitled to your opinion.
