The Alaska Public Lands Information Center has a lot of great information of course but take the time to pick the brains of all their staff. They are extremely knowledgeable of not jut the immediate area but also all about Alaska.

This is just part of the Fairbanks, AK Welcome, Information, local Museum, etc, building. Probably of interest to hikes and backcounty adventure folks.

I felt it ruin the beautiful view. As I talked to local people, they are not happy about it. It sticks out like a sore thumb. Why would we do this to such beautiful land.

This is a great place to go to get information about the Federal Alaska Public Lands. The Rangers and Staff are all excellent speakers, enthusiastic about their work, and have a lot of great material to inform the tourist about the Public Lands.

The title says information center, and that is truly one of the things that is there. There are plenty of personnel to help you with things to do and to see in Alaska. The other thing that is here is a pretty good museum as well. Of course, it is all about Alaska. It is very well done. There are... More

We always stop by to get information for our canoe trips in Alaska. If the staff don't have the information, they will provide you with contact phone numbers. There are also interesting movies available, a nice little museum, and lots of brochures.
