The Morris Thompson Cultural and Visitors Center welcomes visitors year-round and admission is always free. Come explore our world-class exhibits of Alaska’s four seasons, experience Alaska Native art, music, stories & dance, and talk with local experts to gather information and ideas for your travel in Interior and Arctic Alaska. Whether you’re on the trip of a lifetime or preparing for this weekend’s hike, we have something for you. Here you can attend informative lectures and presentations, and reserve one of our rentable spaces for your next board meeting, or workshop. Take a moment to walk around the grounds to see the iconic antler arch and our seasonal displays of flower gardens and ice sculptures.
