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.

When you arrive to the coastal town of Homer you don´t expect to find a really interesting museum about the Homestead times, native people way of life, enviromental disasters in Alaska and live webcams following Seagull colonies. Highly recommend it!

This is a small but well laid out museum. The top floor focuses on the history of Homer; a bit too heavy on the white settlers and not enough attention to the native peoples. Floor two focuses on the marine environment; this is better handled...More

This small museum is chock full of local artifacts. Make sure to watch the videos and visit the homestead house. Staff is friendly and helpful. They are a ROAM museum so bring your card for free admission and then you can donate if you like.

We really enjoyed this museum as it was rainy outside, so an indoor activity was in order. I especially enjoyed the live feed of birds from Gull Island. I also enjoyed the Exon Valdez display.

Visited on a rainy day, hoping for little but shelter. What we got was a full two or three hours of interesting history, including some insights into early homesteaders through videos and picture, a good overview of wildlife both in the sea and on land,...More
