Mendenhall Glacier Visitor Center

Visitor Center in Juneau

This mini-museum holds ranger talks, shows an 11-minute film and displays exhibits relating to the glacier and its formation. There are huge panoramic windows looking out over the lake, the glacier and gushing Nugget Falls. Various trails lead out directly from the center (pick up a free map).
