The visitors center has a beautiful view of Pioneer Peak .provides lots of information for the area and it's attractions. Has a nice Veterans Memorial on its lawn. Plans are to move it across the highway to a new facility in the next couple years.

Nice pull out areas for beautiful scenery on the drive up. The visitor center is small but well stocked with information on the area and has a nice museum. Staff were helpful.

Best little visitors center I've seen. They carry booklets and pamphlets for the entire state so you can plan your way in any direction ahead of time. Well informed people on staff to answer your questions. Take a peek at some of Alaska's native critters...More

Went to get information for friends that will be visiting from the lower 48, young girl was very informative. The place is small and it smelled like urine, hence the average rating.
