We may not look like a visitor center but don't judge our building by its cover! Located in the historic Federal Building in downtown Anchorage, we offer history as well as natural and cultural interpretation. Our building survived the second biggest earthquake in recorded history and we can survive your toughest questions about Alaska's public lands!
Park Rangers are always available to answer questions, give interpretive programs, exciting tours and help visitors understand Alaska's vast public lands.
