Kachemak Bay: An Exploration of People and Place
The Pratt Museum’s permanent exhibition features community-based videos, photo essays, and interactive computer displays that take visitors beyond the Museum walls to learn about historic and contemporary life around Kachemak Bay.
Historic Harrington Cabin
Adjacent to the Museum, the cabin is filled with items that show how the hard-working people who
homesteaded around Kachemak Bay lived. Hand tools, antique appliances, daily diaries, crochet work and kitchen supplies weave a tale of their lifestyle. Museum docents are sometimes available to give guided tours, or visitors can listen to an oral history recording.
A stroll through the garden paths in front of the Museum reveals an array of 150 plant species native to the Kenai Peninsula. Forget-me-nots, wild geranium, chocolate lilies, wild roses and Labrador tea are only a few of the many that bloom there.
Various education programs are taking place throughout the year at the Pratt. Check out the Pratt’s website for more details, www.prattmuseum.org, and click on the calendar of events.
