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. There is much to be learned which you might not expect. I would rate this as five... More

The Public Lands info center is a great place for visiting educators. Lots of info is available that can be used in the classroom when studying US history, Alaska, the arctic, national parks and more. The staff is very helpful if you are planning backpacking/hiking trips in public use areas. They also have well designed informational displays about different regions... More

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.

In the Morris Thompson Cultural center. have numerous brochures & personnel are more than willing to answer any questions no matter how trivial. Apparently have good maps for back-country expeditions(we do not hike, so only glanced at them).
