I enjoy museums and this one is a little Gem. It offers a view of life in Alaska in a small space. The staff are friendly and it is a nice place to spend time on a wintery day.

Very nice Museum. Three floors. Tells you many things about Homer and the area. We spent two hours and could have spent more. Really worth it.

There is a lot to this museum. Art, sea life, and history are showcased. If you spend a day here, you will learn all about Homer and Alaskan homesteading. Well worth it.
