Our museum area has numerous exhibits featuring research that is being performed in Denali and other Alaska national parks. We offer exhibits for all ages, including a hands-on exploration station for families! There are also comfortable chairs and science publications to enjoy on cold and wet days.

The main building also contains a large, dividable classroom with video-teleconferencing equipment, a conference room, and office space capable of hosting 15 partners, science educators, and researchers. Other MSLC facilities include a nearby dining facility, a front-country yurt for visiting researchers and presenters, and a remote field camp featuring six tent cabins (that sleep 24 total), a food storage facility and a yurt. Situated at mile 29 of the Denali Park Road, the field camp provides convenient accommodations within the park for MSLC education courses and permitted researchers.
