Pratt Museum

The Pratt Museum invites anyone interested in the museum to complete its online survey that will help guide the museum in the planning process. All respondents age 18 and over are eligible to participate in a $100 Amazon Gift Card sweepstakes while remaining anonymous for the survey (details provided at the end of the survey).

Children of all ages are invited to join the Pratt Museum for the annual Stocking Stuffer Party from 1-4 p.m. Friday with activities like building graham cracker houses, exploring seasonal art activities, decorating cookies and visiting with Santa Claus in the Homestead Cabin.

The Pratt Museum Store will hold a holiday sale from through Dec. 23 during regular museum hours. Members receive an additional 10 percent off.

"History in the Making: Quilts, Quilters and Their Stories" is on display through Dec. 30. In conjunction with the exhibit, at 5 p.m. Nov. 30 the museum presents a special showing of quilts from the Pratt Museum's collections. Visitors will have a chance to see several quilts not normally on exhibit. Following the collections showing, the museum shows "The Great American Quilt Revival," narrated by Georgia Bonesteel, a film about how quilts came to be recognized as works of art.
