The historic area encompasses World War II ruins on the island that stand on Native-owned lands. The National Park Service helped fund the improvements and interprets the history; however, to hike to the main area of ruins, on Ulatka Head, you will need to buy a permit from the Ounalashka Corporation., which you can get here or at the corporate offices. Admission to the center is $5, and it's open Thursday through Saturday 11am to 5pm.
