We were pleasantly surprised and the quality of this museum. I mean, Homer Alaska, do you think you are going to find a lot of high quality displays? Well, apparently, YES. It is a somewhat small, maybe medium sized museum, but there is a lot to see. Many multimedia kiosks, very modern. There is a very large amount of information... More

The museum is small but provides a lot of information about the history and wildlife of the area. Very interesting displays and well maintained. I really recommend to visit this museum and spend there at least half day.

Our little museum is one of the best in the world. See the kiddie tank and hold a hermit crab or revisit the devastation of the Exxon Valdez Oil Spill. Homesteading exhibit is great!

I love this museum and recommend to all my guests. The live web cams are so exciting and the feeding of the fish for kids is great. Also, love the art displays.

The Pratt Museum is THE best introduction to Kachemak Bay and the charming town of Homer. The Award-winning museum's permanent and temporary exhibits will enable you to enjoy your visit more because you will understand what makes this amazing place tick, both in terms of the Bay itself (one of the richest in the world, biologically speaking) and the interesting...

We had a very rainy day on our two day stay in Homer and were looking for some indoor things to do. This is an informative and interesting place. Easy to do in a couple of hours. Worth the visit if you have the time (especially if raining outside).

Fortunately for us, we stopped at this fantastic place our last morning in Homer and only because it was raining. Every piece in this small museum was fascinating. The living histories should not be missed. Don't miss this treasure!
