While you're visiting Homer, don't forego a visit to the Pratt Museum. On your way in-or out-there is a wonderful pioneer cabin set up with items of the type used by the early settlers. Along the front of the Museum are gardens with native plants-all labeled-to give you an idea of what grows in this climate. The Museum itself is... More

This would be my second summer living in Homer, Alaska and out of all the time that I've been here I've always known about the Pratt Museum but I've never gotten a chance to actually visit. A couple of weeks ago I stopped by and they had a free event. (Fish Feeding) I never got a chance to actually feed... More

learn about the history of South Peninsula inhabitents, culture and traditions. Amazing displays both inside and out! The gift shop features locally made items and prices are the most reasonable in all of Alaska!

Had a good time wondering around the museum on the nature trail which runs around the building before wondering in to see the old artifacts left behind or donated to the museum. One room was full of beautiful paintings of the surrounding landscape. Found a picture of my Dad who is the so called czar of junk who has a... More

This is a gem of a museum. We are not big on museums, but this one was great! Very informative, videos were interesting, we also appreciated the art gallery. The little town of Homer has done a wonderful job with this museum.

Just a small museum but packs a lot of history of the pioneer people of Alaska. You can get the feel of how hard life was back in the day when settlers arrived in homer to homestead land. There is an actual cabin with all the items of everyday life with all the original belongings that were used to survive.... More

Good exhibit of Alaska. Many displays of the various aspects of Alaska life. Includes displays on the ocean, wildlife, fish. There is an section that describes some of the tough seas in Alaska, there is a survival suit you can try to put on - like you were in a boat emergency. There are several short films on various aspects... More

We had a free day on our vacation and went to check out the area around Homer. We went to spend an hour or two at the Pratt Museum to get a sense of the history of Homer and Kachemak Bay. It was well worth the visit. We could have spent most of the day. It was fascinating. We especially... More
