Funding supports a renovation to expand collections storage space and improve environmental controls; creation of dedicated program space and facilities for research, conservation, and exhibit preparation.

The National Award-winning Pratt Museum is dedicated to helping people explore the human experience and natural environment in Southcentral Alaska's Kachemak Bay region, one of Alaska's most biologically rich and intensively used ecosystems. The Museum is embarking on a five-year institutional development project. Support from a National Endowment for the Humanities Challenge Grant and the corresponding 3:1 matching funds will help the Pratt make critical improvements so the Museum is able to expand, preserve, interpret, and share its history and cultural collections long into the future. This support will help the Pratt: 1) expand collections storage space and improve environmental controls; 2) construct education program space for delivery of programs that illuminate the historic and contemporary life of Kachemak Bay; 3) develop back-of house facilities for research, object conservation, and exhibit preparation; and 4) renovate galleries for humanities exhibits.
