This is a small yet excellent museum that is well curated. A visit is highly recommended to make your stay on the Kenai Peninsula more relevant.

Lots of good information on the area, the people, the 1964 earthquake and the Exxon Valdez spill. This is a well done museum for such a small town. If you are interested in what makes Homer such a treasure, this is the place to go.

Lots of interesting memorabilia and good history of the Homer area. Several good movies and interactive exhibits to interest young and old alike. One video is a historical summary of the Kilcher family (Alaska The Last Frontier) in Homer.

To do it right would take several hours to take it all in. There are 3 floors of exhibits according to categories. Cost is $10, $8 for seniors and worth every penny.
