We wanted to see the Pipeline. My husband is a life welder and he wanted to see the longest pipeline ever.

For travelers like me from the "lower 48", this attraction was very informative. One of many places the pipeline surfaces along it's path from Prudhoe Bay in the north to Seward in the south. On-site guides give a through explanation of its construction and history

10 minutes max to read the couple of signs. Stop if you are going by but don't make a special trip. Informations signs are good.

This is just by the side of the road on the way out of town but it was very interesting and easy. Liked walking right up the pipe and reading about the history. Would recommend and it only takes 10 minutes from town to get there.

A visit to the Alyeska pipeline is great if you are into engineering or just need to learn more about the pipe line. Not really much there mostly information from the narrator. I would not do this tour if it were not part of the gold dredging tour. In any case bring your walking shoes, water and of course your... More

It was interesting to see a portion of the pipeline and better understand what it took to build it. We had only heard about the magnitude of the project but until you're up close to the actual pipe, there is no way to understand the scale. The outdoor exhibits were well done and very educational. This is about a 15-20... More

Perfect place to stop and view the pipeline up close - see the pipe connection system and support system. Also read the information signs.

Mum and I went by tour bus to see the pipeline, which is fascinating. It was good to learn more about the pipeline and learn how they clean inside it and how they maintain it. It was good to be able to walk right up to it and then see where it goes underneath the ground. Good information provided about... More

Went by tour bus. Take Rain gear if raining because the exhibit is in the open. Interesting construction methods used for building on the perma frost and for earthquakes. Excellent exhibit with detail about design and pipeline operations.

Thank Gater
