You can get right up to the pipeline. Their are several bulletins with information about the history of the pipeline. A small parking lot leading to a small section of the pipe.

It's an amazing stop. Less a "visitor center" and more a roadside sign. That said, it is fascinating. The pipeline is an amazing engineering feet. Learned a little while stretching the legs.

Very interesting place that provides a lot of relative information about the Alyeska Pipeline. You also get to see up close the pipeline itself with the structural supports and some to the equipment to get it maintained.

A big "WOW FACTOR" here. It's just cool to see the pipeline that stimulated the Alaskan economy and that gave the US confidence in our ability to sustain our own oil needs. I'm so glad to have seen this.

This is well done and definitely helps you understand the pipeline. It was interesting to see historical items, such as an old pigg as well as the pipeline itself.

It is amazing how they transport oil in to the frozen and wild areas of Alaska. Very informative. This site is good if you combined it with other sightseeing.

As a retired petroleum logistician, I enjoyed this opportunity to walk around and touch this engineering marvel. It brought one of our natural resources to market when we needed it. A testament to American can do abilities. Even bought a t-shirt at a pump station.

Being in the O&G industry, this was a must see for me while up in this neck of the woods on a family vacation. No need to spend more than 20 min or so to get a taste of this massive pipeline and it's history....More

24/7. It's on a pullout off the Steese Hwy, north of Fairbanks. Park your car, walk across a small bridge & there is the pipeline, along with signs that explain the history, etc. Can be seen from the road & accessed all... More
