Programs and Tours

Ranger programs
  • Tactile objects: All ranger programs strive to engage multiple senses and learning styles, and often include audio components and/or tactile objects.
Park Entrance Area

Denali Visitor Center Area
  • Films and exhibits: 17-minute, non-narrated film, "Heartbeats of Denali," shares sights and sounds of the park in all its seasons. Many exhibits in the center are tactile, including animal furs, historic artifacts, and more.
  • Noises and quite spaces: The center has no PA system, though in the event of an emergency the fire alarm is quite loud. Numerous benches outside the facility can offer a respite from the often-busy facility.
