We visited the AK Public Lands Centers in both Anchorage and Fairbanks. This one is significantly larger. We watched several interesting videos and took about 90 minutes to walk through the exhibits. We could have stayed longer, but we didn't budget enough time. Our son completed a Jr. Ranger badge here. As always, a very nice, well put together, educational, and interesting National Parks center.

Like most tourist information centers this location has an introductory exhibit, many available brochures and knowledgeable staff. It's only a few blocks away from downtown and in a very walker-friendly area near Griffin Park and the Chena River bank.

Highly recommended if you are not travelling in an organized tour.

This is inside the visitors centre and has really nice displays of local history, land use, and information about local walks etc .

A wealth of information. Take a few minutes to watch the movie playing in the theater. It was a very good primer to the area's history. The displays are very well done and the information available there is comprehensive.

Staff in the information could not be more polite or helpful. There is so much in the Archives to view. Unfortunately, we were a little taken aback when we had to go through security to access the building. This is something we are not used to, although we understand the necessity of it..
