Begich-Boggs Visitors Center

Tourist Information in Anchorage Region

This visitor center is on Portage Lake. The building, with its observation decks and telescopes, was designed to provide great views of Portage Glacier. But, ironically, the glacier has retreated so fast you can no longer see it from the center. Still, inside are neat high-tech wildlife displays and the excellent movie, Retreat & Renewal.
