The Kenai Visitor and Cultural Center serves two purposes, making it one of the more unique visitor centers in existence. In addition to promoting Kenai as a great destination for tourists, it also promotes the history and culture of the city, is responsible for the management of the culture center, and promotes membership in the visitors bureau for businesses. Many visitor centers stop at attracting people to the town, but in Kenai, they want visitors to appreciate the rich and interesting history of the city. The building features 10,000-square feet filled with historical artifacts, education programs, and wildlife exhibits. They host the Saturday Market, and there is a museum store so you do not have to return from your trip empty handed. Included in the items for sale are arts and handicrafts made by local artisans, books about Alaska, and apparel and other products made in Alaska. Vendors are invited to sell their items on consignment or via a wholesale process in the store. The Saturday Market is held from mid-May through mid-September. Vendors from the Kenai area bring handicrafts, fresh produce, and baked goods to share with Kenai residents and visitors. The visitor center is open year-round and welcome visitors from around the world.
