  • Small.. Cheap.. Lots of information. Older lady at desk was very helpful and knew quiet a bit about the culture and history. It has local art from modern age people within the last few years and also stuff from tribes many years ago.. The back has animal info and a bird watching camera feed from bird island. Its worth going to once u hit homer to better appreciate ur surroundings
  • Really great museum. Spend 3 hours reading content and watching films. Reveals a lot of facts about Homer itself, Exxon oil pollution, locals, animals and history of the place. I’d highly recommend to visit Pratt museum.
  • Just enough to explain the area and the bay but not too much stuff to overwhelm you.
  • Good mixture of modern art and historical artifacts.
  • Short but the people are really nice and the displays very interesting.
