Nice place to visit before you explore Denali. Nice snack bar. Other amenities/food service nearby. Staff very willing and helpful. Displays great! Allow for some time to view all of them.

Very organized and wonderful people, free dog sled program three times daily. Wishing we were staying in a tent here rather than the Denali Park Village :(

The visitor center is very informative. It is a nice big building with a gift shop and clean restrooms. We stopped here before going in to the park. We saw a couple of demonstrations and really enjoyed it.

The visitor center had several exhibits which gave a good base knowledge for our family as we prepared to explore Denali. Be sure to look for and pull out the drawers in some of the exhibits to learn even more about the animals and birds native to the park.

Spent some time here before our bus tour of Denali. Had a great set of displays and knowledgeable park rangers. Also a nice snack bar to load up before your bus tour (we got food / drinks before, but they had a nice selection there..)

The visitor center is conveniently located just a short walk from the Denali train depot. The building is modern and pleasant with decent displays. We weren't impressed with the big fake moose display though. Nearby is a restaurant, gift shop and an outdoor seating area with tables for a place to eat a packed lunch or to just relax. We... More
