Aiming to expand, Homer's Pratt Museum seeks advice

Alaska Beat

The Pratt Museum in Homer, a small Alaska city often referred to as the "end of the road," is seeking help in planning for a new museum facility, according to a press release.

Due to a lack of space, the need for a new roof, and inadequate storage space, the Pratt Museum plans to build a new facility.

The museum is asking for a broad range of opinions, everyone from regular patrons to those that have never visited are encouraged to complete an online survey. The museum writes:

Our goal is to reach the broadest possible audience so we can learn what people want to see in the museum, and what kind of programs they enjoy. We hope to hear from all segments of the population on the Kenai Peninsula, Anchorage and beyond.

The Pratt Museum is the only natural-history museum in the 25,600-square-mile area of the Kenai Peninsula. It focuses on the rich natural environment and history of human experience in and around Alaska's Kachemak Bay region.

The survey takes just a few minutes to complete and can be found here. The deadline for submissions is Dec. 16 and, as a "thank you" for participating, all adult respondents are eligible to participate in an Amazon Gift Card sweepstakes worth up to $100.
