No visit in Denali goes without experiencing this amazing visitor center. The staff is amazing and very informational (they have passion for alaska and nature's preservation). They helped us navigate the park a day on our own and a day on the tour bus. The gift center is also very unique, where you can purchase stuff like jams, berries, organic... More

I visited the park in the spring, when the road was open to cars up to a certain mile marker. The staff were very helpful in providing maps and helpful information, such as the best places to stop for an opportunity to see Denali.

The visitors centre is worth a stop on any visit to Denalli. The displays are informative and highlight the native history of the area. The cafe and book shop opposite are also well worth a visit.

Enjoyed wandering around the displays. The movie was informative and interesting. Rangers are there to share their knowledge. Nice restaurant with healthy food options.

I felt like the visitors center was very helpful and educational. I recommend a stop there before taking the tour bus in. This will help you become more educated while on the bus.

After our all day bus trip into Danali the visitor center is a grand place especially with the large screen video they show. The visitor center is right next to where we will be boarding the train for Anchorage tomorrow.

Looks very new. Nice displays. Helpful park rangers. The cafe was nice. A good little bookstore with a nice selection of things to help you remember your visit. An extremely nice way to welcome everyone to Denali. Of course, the park is exceptional. We are lucky to live in a country that has protected this magnificent wilderness for all if... More

On our visit to Denali we spent some time at the visitor center before going to the sled dog training area. Lots to see and do at the center, I wish we had more time to have seen all that was available.
