Bearing in mind that Homer is a fairly small town, it's a slight surprise there's a museum here at all. It's not a large building by any means, (but they do really maximize the use of the space that is available. There's art, videos, and information on the native peoples of the area, the history of the region, and life in a small seafaring community. There's also a historic cabin (which unfortunate you can't actually enter) that shows how old timers lived in the homesteading era. Price is $15, although there are various discounts.
Fantastic exhibits on Homer History, Valdez Oil Spill, Bears, and Sea life. There is so much to see here that you'll need at least an hour. Don't forget to visit the Pratt Homestead Cabin and Pratt Museum Forest Trails outside.
