We stopped at the visitor center to get a map and some information about downtown Anchorage. The lady I spoke with did not seem to want to help me. She was not overly rude but it was clear she did not want to talk to me. She gave me a map of downtown and gave me a short answer then... More

Beautifully created and located in downtown Anchorage, this is a beautiful little place to visit to get information about Alaska and surrounds. You can also board local tour buses from here.

The ladies have been told to go across the street, which is a government building and therefore has the standard big government metal detectors and government issued ID card is required to enter. We found the center very pretty and helpful... More

Very helpful. All you need to know and more. I was a little disappointed that they didn't have coupons or advice on where to get some. Found out later you can buy coupon books. About the first use you have your money back.

The two ladies working the day we were there had sooooo much information. They were a very big help since we were only in for one day and wanted to get as much in as we could !!

Great information is available here and next to it is an outdoor eating area and often music. Also find out about the area around the hut in winter. There are beautiful ice sculptures!

The log cabin is welcoming. There are maps and people to help you with what you need. Behind the log cabin is a visitor center with tons of brochures if you want more detail. Helpful stuff. Lines were not long.
