Heavy rain put paid to our plans for our last shore day in Alaska, there was no enjoyment to be had on any outdoor activity in the cold and mist. Having read the reviews this centre was on our to do list anyway. Although the TourIst Information office said that it was unlikely to be open due to low visitor numbers (just the 4,000 passengers from the two ships in port that day, many of whom would be trying to keep dry) the lady did ring up to check. It was open and we spent a couple of hours in the centre. The exhibits were well put together and took us through the history, natural history, geology and industries of the area. There are films on in the theatre throughout the day and with a wrist stamp system you can return to catch any that are on later. There is a classroom area that probably caters for groups of children rather than individuals but there's enough to interest kids with their parents. All in all a great little centre.
