There was a good display with lots of information and a fun photo op, but there's only so much you can say about a pipeline. Take an empty water bottle and stop to fill it at the natural water spring near Fox when you go.

We were on a Princess tour in the summer. We started at the pipeline and learned about the history and length and challenges of it from very informative and entertaining guide. I've never cared or paid attention so it was good for me! We then...More

I wouldn't travel to Fairbanks just for this, but if you're already in the area, it's impressive to see the pipeline up close and learn more about it. It's close to town and free!

Unfortunately we weren't able to visit the visitor center due to flooding from the ice breakup. It was pretty interesting visiting the actual pipeline.

This was pretty neat to see. Good history/information posted on site. I my self was not interested, only because museum type sites bore me. However like mentioned, was pretty neat to see.

Learned a lot by stopping here. Why the pipeline is elevated, about pipe pigs, and a history of this pipeline.

A quick but informative stop along the Steese Highway. You can visit the famous pipeline and see what a marvel it really is.
