Begich Boggs Visitor Center Reviews & Ratings
This was a really nice visitor center. They had a nice movie we watched and all the staff were really sweet and helpful. We saw a tiny iceberg here! I highly recommend stopping by!
Not far off the main highway between Anchorage and Seward. The Begich Boggs Visitors Center is worth visiting. Excellent displays and exhibits. Six glaciers can be seen from a viewing room or outside.
This is a nice place to stop just before going on a Portage Glacier cruise. There’s a good view of the mountains and you can take pictures anywhere. It also have nice restroom in case you don’t want to use the park style stand alone restrooms down by the Portage Cruise dock.
From the outside this place looks like an evil villain's secret fortress. Inside it's animals info and history. A combination you only find in Alaska. Great bathrooms.
This place was great and the rangers there were so friendly and helpful in teaching us all about how glaciers are formed and about the wildlife in the area! They have a room that overlooks Portage Lake and clean restrooms. There is a museum portion that you pay to enter, but also enough to look at in the free section as well, including animal pelts you can feel.
