Surprised by the quality of this small town museum. Very well layed out and informative on the area.

A little too crowded with the cruise line visitors. Wonderful mixture of local art and lore. The booth with the story of the fishermen who had survived a ship or wreck or the story of the homesteads were wonderful. We didn't visit the grounds because it was pouring that would have made the admission price a better investment.

Quality exhibits for a small place. I thought that the Exxon Valdez information was particularly well presented and the local artwork was interesting. Liked looking at the good collection of marine life. Overall excellent value.

What a lovely museum. Built by the people of Homer. Most informational. They have a live feed to Brooks River for bear viewing. Museum has 3 levels and well worth the money.
