Located on the northwest edge of Portage Lake, this Visitor Center he's quite popular with Alaskan to rest. It gives you an in-depth insight into the Chugach National Forest and Prince William Sound. The exhibits are incredibly immersive, with light and sound and wind effects, as you go through the various dioramas. Inside a movie theatre you get to watch the acclaimed documentary Voices from the Ice. This is also the place for you to arrange the cruise tour of Portage Lake to take you up to the glacier.

Begich Boggs Visitor Center, Anchorage Reviews
Portage Valley is a unique isthmus between two mountain ranges. The visitors center explains how, why, and more. Not a fan of admission (a few bucks) to public lands info buildings, but its worth it to learn about this place. Be sure to walk or cycle along the Trail of Blue Ice!
Very worthwhile and more like a museum. Viewing binoculars and right on the water. Lots of birds and sometimes see birds and ice floats in the water.
The visitor center is closed in the winter, but this is a great hike. It's 3 miles into the glacier, but it's all flat. The lake is frozen with patches of snow and you should have ice grippers or snow shoes. Lots of cross country skiing too. Dress warmly!
We would Definitely come back again and recommend it others
Stopped here while waiting for the Whistler tunnel and it was a nice little experience. There a short little museum dedicated to the area and the natives with lots of information. There are movies shown in the theater every once in a while, and after the movie is over the screen retracts and reveals a view of the lake and glacier which is really cool.
