Very informative visitor center. Wonderful and talkative Rangers. easy shuttle bus accommodations. My 4 year old was excited to earn her first Junior Ranger Badge and get a stamp in her passport.

Allow time to really read the information provided and to look at the many exhibits to fully appreciate how Denali became such a national treasure.

This is the place to learn about Denali and all the park has to offer. While our questions were new to us I am sure the rangers had heard them before as they answered the questions with empathy. Learned about the different bus tours and wild life in the area. Clearly a must stop.

Wonderful informative center! If you watch the video they play, you'll need about 1 1/2 hours to see everything. We then spent another 30 min in the bookstore. It was getting dark so I did not have time to see their sled dog demonstration, but I heard it was fantastic so I would recommend at least half a day there.

Definitely try to make time to visit the visitor center during you Denali Park visit. Some nice displays and information on the Denali area and wildlife.

At the Visitor Center, we watched both the Denali film and the PowerPoint presentation by the Park Ranger - both were very informative and gave different perspectives of Denali. Take the time to attend both. We also went to the dog sled presentation (you pick up the shuttle at the Visitor Center). The dog sledding presentation was also very informative.... More

This center is much like most National Park visitors' centers. There is a movie that orients visitors to the park, rangers to help plan your park visit, and one floor that houses dioramas of the animals indigenous to the arrea.

Can't say we were impressed with the visitor's center. We have been to many and this one was just average. Nothing stands out in our memory about it.

This should be the first stop of a Denali visit. This helps you plan better for any excursions and gives a little history of the Denali area. Try to time your visit to the dog sled demos (have to take a separate bus from the Center).
