“Wonderful! So interesting, "real" Alaska!”
Reviewed July 14, 2012

This small museum, with several buildings, is very worthwhile and takes only an hour or two. It is staffed by volunteers who know so much about the area, the homesteading families, and the log buildings on site. So worthwhile! Easy to find and well worth your visit!

“Worth the Stop!”
Reviewed July 3, 2012

If you have an interest in history, you have to stop here. Great collection of buildings from the early settlement of the area in the mid 20th century. What made the place so interesting was the wonderful docent who was from one of the pioneering families of the area. Amazing to learn that just a little over a half century ago people were settling this area under the conditions that most of us associate with a 150 years ago or more. Allow an hour and a half or so to enjoy this!

Great place to stop. Docents lead tours through the buildings and explain homesteading on the Kenai peninsula. Very interesting. Friendly, knowledgeable volunteers.
