This welcome center with restrooms and maps has a museum--fee--about the building of Alcan highway in 1942 and movie about the building of it. They will gladly take a photo of you at Milepost 0 in the intersection by their building.

This is a great museum to stop at before hopping on the Alcan. The museum is small but the documentary is informative and gave us a great view of history.
