Neat log cabin in the heart of downtown. The ladies inside have lots of information to share. Shuttles (Zoo) and tours depart from there.

Volunteers man this attraction, which is housed in a log cabin with a sod roof, reminiscent of the first days of Anchorage, in 1915 or so. Inside there are pamphlets and brochures showcasing local and statewide attractions, and information for transportation, parks, and things to do.

Very quaint. The employees were friendly and helpful. Booked the Anchorage Trolley Tour right outside the visitor center. Highly recommend that trolley tour.

The lovely lady who works there, so I have forgotten her name, was so helpful. I was given enough info that I was able to drive wherever I wanted without getting lost. The location of the Cabin is very central and cosy.

That's great you were given good directions. And it's ok if you have forgotten the staff member's name who was helpful, you can thank her yourself when you visit again next year! More

There are three Visitors Centers on the corner of Fourth Avenue and F Street. The Visitors Center that is in the Federal Building is more of an educational type center with movies, models, maps, history, etc. and requires a search (same type as airport) before you go in.

We actually visited here on our last day in Anchorage. We were in town for a business trip so didn't have much time to do touristy things. The staff were very friendly and passionate. We enjoyed seeing that so many people have visited here from around the world.
