Don't miss this if you go to Homer, Alaska. You will learn a lot about the pioneers to this area, native culture, and the environment. I have been to much larger museums offering much less.

This is a GREAT museum for all ages. Skeletons of mammals of Kachemak Bay, incredible hollowed Apple Tree doll house. Spent several wonderful hours enjoying - even visited the original homestead on the property.

We did not know what to expect and came away very impressed. Their displays and the accompanying information were outstanding! This place is a real gem and not to be missed while in Homer. They even have a cabin as an exhibit on the property and we greatly enjoyed visiting with the volunteer there.

We thought (mistakenly) that 2 hours would be enough - and felt sorrow that didn't have at least one hour more.

Great museum. Three levels, easy ramps. Trolley pickup and drop-off makes it easy. Variety of Alaskan items and native history.
