The mission of the Pratt Museum is to strengthen relationships between people and place through stories relevant to Kachemak Bay.
Our vision is that all stories are acknowledged as relevant to an interdependent community of people and place. Stories are a basic unit of understanding; they are the method by which we communicate with ourselves and with each other. At the museum, “stories” describe individuals, cultures, and ecosystems through evolving personal, artistic, scientific, and cultural narratives. Every story, especially when revealed through the dynamic processes of exploration and dialogue, is relevant. The Pratt Museum fulfills its mission by facilitating engagement between community members and strengthening understandings of our shared place. Through these activities, the unique relationship between the people and places of Kachemak Bay will be sustained far into the future.
