One of Alaska’s top museums, the Pratt offers a wide-ranging foundation for understanding the state, from woolly mammoth fossils and a thousand-year-old birch-bark basket to archives of photos and even homesteader tales of pickled eggs. Over 250 maps include early hand-drawn efforts as well as aerial views and nautical charts. Founded in 1968 as Homer’s centennial project, the museum is now gearing up for a new larger building and interpretive trails.
