We have been to many NP's in the US and visited most of the visitor center to get souvenirs, maps or get info about hikes and things to do. But this one visitor center was very different for us. After our shuttle bus tour we went to the visitor center and started walking around seeing the exhibits. They were very... More

Very interesting info and timeline of Denali NP. Displays were well done, although some were under repair. Great map showing Denali through the years. Spent a good 45 minutes there and didn't get to see everything!

The exhibit is informative and the sled dog demo was probably the highlight of this particular day (we did the ride to Wonder Lake on the park road busses the day before). They only do that a few times a day so you have to plan around it. It's helpful if you can see the visitor center before you do... More

The rangers go out of the way to help you, especially the children. The Visitor Center also has gift shop, book store, rest rooms etc.

The visitor center was clean and warm on our chilly rainy day. There are many self learning areas within the building if you take the time to look. The highlight for us was viewing the movie shown in their video room. Helpful staff.

Each of the visitor centers in Denali covers different topics. I really enjoyed the exhibits and how the setup/layout of the exhibit. There was one that was comparing and contrasting the rings of the trees. There were two pull out drawers for you to look at the cross section of two trees ... and the bottom of the drawer was...

The visitor center is very informative, the staff was very friendly and helpful. Facility is fairly new and everything is very clean. We took the bus trip to Eielson and were not disappointed. Only problem was our bus driver was about 30 minutes late arriving. Souvenir store was nice with lots of books. Coffee not overpriced, didn't purchase any food.

Good film to introduce you to the parks animals and land. Nice "stuff" to see in the center. I enjoyed being here.

Loved the visitor center, lots of great information and overview of the park. Avoid the restaurant, food was awful. We ended up tossing more than half of our meals (we were a party of 8). Overpriced and overcooked.
