Alaska Public Lands


Alaska's parks, forests and refuges are rich and varied. The Anchorage Interagency Visitor Center helps visitors and residents to have meaningful, safe, enjoyable experiences on public lands, and encourages them to sustain the natural and cultural resources of Alaska. This center and three others statewide provide trip-planning, interpretation, and education for all ages.


The visitor center is located at 605 W. 4th Avenue, in downtown Anchorage. It is housed within the historic "Old Federal Building" on the corner of 4th Avenue and F Street. The entrance is on the east side of the building, closest to F Street. Because the site resides in a federal building, there is a screening station at the entrance which requires a picture id for adults.
