Planning a Visit

Winter (late September – early May)

The MSLC serves as Denali’s Winter Visitor Center. This is the place to begin your winter visit to Denali. Learn about the park by watching park films and browsing a small display area. Borrow snowshoes to take on the trails or pick up a Junior Ranger Activity Book. Rangers are available to answer questions and collect park entrance fees (credit cards only, no cash).

Summer (mid May – mid September)

The Murie Science and Learning Center is closed to the public in summer. It serves as an operations base for registration-based educational programs.
