The museum is tiny but well designed and professional done. You don't need a lot of time to see it but it is fun. My husband sent them donations for years afterward so they can keep up their good work.
You will be amazed at the size, breadth and quality of exhibits at this museum. Homer has a population of about 5000 and supports this great museum. Exhibits are wide ranging, centering on the natural history of the Southern Kenai Peninsula. The "Gull Cam" is a favorite of mine, a live feed camera situated on Gull Island, a seabird rookery... 更多
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.
