The museum focuses on the natural and cultural history of the Kenai Peninsula. Exhibits include artifacts from the area's earliest Native inhabitants to homesteaders of the '30s & '40s. Excellent aquariums and a tide-pool tank feature live Kachemak Bay sea creatures. Visitors may operate remotely controlled cameras to view Alaska seabirds on inaccessible islands. Also exhibited are Alaska birds and mammals including complete skeletons of a Bering Sea beaked whale, Beluga whale and Steller's sea lion. Changing exhibits feature Alaska artwork and other topics of special interest. Summer visitors may take a self-guided tour through the botanical garden and the Forest Ecology Trail and visit the historic Harrington Homestead cabin. The Museum Store features books and Alaska collectibles. Accredited by the American Association of Museums.
