  • Great place for kids. As adults, there was some good reading but not much to do. Overall, a great place!
  • Great facility, friendly staff! Lots of exhibits available for kids to interact with. Very well designed to keep children interested in learning more about the different ecosystems around Homer. There is a short trail that leads to a marshy area and to the beach.
  • A definite stop whilst in Homer. If you do not have your activities already planned this is a great place to start. The AI&O Visitors Center boasts knowledgeable rangers and staff. Make sure to check out the trail that is right behind the center.
  • Check out the trail behind the building!
  • Great building and location
