This was a fantastic little museum with wonderful displays. We stopped by for an hour or two and stayed busy the whole time. We had to leave because the museum was closing and once again I had barely seen 1/2 of the displays. Downstairs has a camera that shows the birds at Gull Island. There is also a small fish... More

The museum is small but very interesting. Really give a feel of the area's history. The stories of residents are excellent, especially those who told of their ordeals on sinking ships.

We enjoyed this interactive museum. It features the history of the area. It included art and artifacts. It cost me $8 to enter but well with it. Take time to watch the 30 minute bear video. Also, the gift shop was nice with work by local artisans. I bought earrings.

We had a wonderful family visit that was a fantastic way to spend a rainy vacation day. The Pratt is a fantastic museum chocked full of history of the people, animals and geology of the Homer area. All of the displays are wonderfully presented and very educational and informative. Every floor was a different experience. We really enjoyed interacting with... More

Learn about the history of this area, and if it is a Tuesday or Thursday around 4:00, stay with your kids to feed the fish!

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.
