Take your time and read all the signs. We went there on a tour and our guide was very knowledgeable.

The oil pipeline as long as 800 miles that costed 700 billion dollars. It pumps the oil from Arctic ocean to Valdez port. Great information and some demo structure.

amazing to learn about the reasons that some of the pipeline is buried and all that it takes to keep it flowing

I stopped here on my drive to the Dalton Highway. Interesting education on the pipeline, the history. You can walk around to see it up close too. Recommend a stop.

Nice visit. Good narration. Took train to historic Gold dredge. Panned for gold and had a bracelet made with the gold found.

The stop was awesome. In the middle of nowhere, next to the Yukon River. The outdoor displays are nice, short hike to the river. The docent was very friendly & helpful.

It's a pipeline, and although it must have been an immense undertaking to build, this doesn't really come across in the presentation. Basically you and the many other visitors are herded out of your coaches, stand around chatting or reading the info boards on site...More

A short trip out of town takes you to this viewing area. We happened to arrive with a tour bus, and got to listen to the narrative which was informative. You won't spend a long time here, but it is worth the visit.

We had driven up from Valdez the day before so we drove along the pipeline for 300 + miles and stopped at other places with signs. It is very interesting and we loved the descriptions of everything. There is no building here, just signs and...More

24/7. It's on a pullout off the Steese Hwy, north of Fairbanks. Park your car, walk across a small bridge & there is the pipeline, along with signs that explain the history, etc. Can be seen from the road & accessed all... More
