Planning a Visit to the MSLC

Summer (June 1 – late August)

Families and science enthusiasts are encouraged to visit the MSLC from 1–3 pm daily to talk with science educators, engage in hands-on science activities, and explore the exhibit area. The feature exhibit showcases fossilized dinosaur footprints and a mural depicting Denali during the Cretaceous era. There is also an interactive Maker Space for youth, and comfortable chairs and science publications to enjoy on cold and wet days.

Winter (late September – early May)

The MSLC serves as Denali’s Winter Visitor Center. This is the place to begin your winter visit to Denali. Learn about the park by exploring interactive exhibits and watching park films. Borrow snowshoes to take on the trails or pick up a Junior Ranger Activity Book. Rangers are available to answer questions and collect park entrance fees.
