Anchorage Center

Located in Anchorage's historic Federal Building, the center hosts exhibits representing natural, historical, and cultural features throughout the state. Wandering among the exhibits, visitors get a mini-tour of Alaska. One can also learn about recreating on public lands in the state as well as materials for educators to bring back to their classrooms. Staffed by National Park Rangers, the center offers a plethora of information: from one-on-one trip planning assistance, to brochures and maps, to camping destinations, safety tricks, and so much more.
