I was impressed when I visited this visitor center. It's not just a rack of tourist maps and attraction brochures.

Morris Thompson center does a brilliant job at explaining the seasons, native culture and the life in alaska. If nothing, its a great place to warm up and watch a video in the winter. The book collection is great as well.
