We stopped by the visitor center and it is tiny. There appeared to be 2 ladies helping tourists so we stood in line. When asked our questions we really didn't get answers. We were directed across the street to the Federal Building to look at their displays. No info for us there!

There is a trolley tour ($20/person) that starts at the visitors’ center. It is well worth doing and it gives you and excellent view of the city and the surrounding areas.

We're glad to hear you took one of the many tours and shuttles that pick up near the cabin. It sounds like you had a good trip out with Anchorage City Trolley Tours! Thanks for visiting the cabin. More

Bevy of printed information, maps and informative volunteers here to assist you in your exploration of Anchorage. Look for the small log cabin in downtown area, in the park area. Friendly volunteers here can help you find what you're looking for. There is a shuttle bus stop right outside the Cabin, which goes to different Anchorage attractions.

We got lots of information on what to see and all the shuttles and the trolley times. Very friendly. There is another center exactly behind the log cabin that also has maps etc. Both centers are worth a visit.
