Interstate Park Ice Age Interpretive Center
Stop at the Ice Age Interpretive Center and join the naturalist for a nature program. The center is about 0.4 miles west of State Highway 35 on Park Road.
The Interpretive Center is open May through September, weekdays (8:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.) and weekends (9 a.m. - 5 p.m.). Winter hours vary.
Things to do
Visitors can view exhibits to learn about the frozen history of Wisconsin and the gifts of the Ice Age. The park's new 24-minute film, "Mammoths and Moraines: On the Trail of the Ice Age,” tells the story of glaciation in Wisconsin. This film is shown in the auditorium.
Summer naturalist programs are offered Memorial Day weekend through Labor Day. Explore the trails, ponder the potholes or hear the colorful history of the St. Croix River valley during a guided hike or activity. In fall, special activities may be scheduled to take advantage of the area’s beautiful colors. Nature Storytime programs for children are offered on Thursday mornings in summer and winter. See the Get Outdoors! Events Calendar for a list of all nature programs and events.
Become a Wisconsin Explorer and discover the natural world. Pick up a booklet at the nature center. The booklets are full of hands-on, exciting and educational activities for days on the beach, rainy days at home or starry nights. Complete at least half of activities and return it to any state park, forest or recreation area. Receive a patch and certificate for completing the activities.
Glaciers' Gift Shop, in the lobby of the Ice Age Interpretive Center, offers nature-related books and field guides, T-shirts, children's items and other souvenirs for purchase. Firewood and ice are also available.
