Amazing! More wonderful memories and photos here with my mom, dad took the pictures. So many great things to do in Alaska, who knew ? Wow ! I guess it depends on the time of year sometimes, what you do and don't do.

This is such an interesting place. Lots of information about the park. Building is just beautiful. Husband is a builder, so enjoyed checking it out! We also walked on some of the walking paths and the scenery was beautiful.

Very educational! Learn where the natives lived and all the animals that surrounded them in the Alaskan wilderness. Had lots of fun hiking around the park after we went to the visitor center.

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.
