Our exhibits interpret Kodiak’s Russian era (1741-1867), the early American era (1867-1912) and the modern era (1912-present). The Kodiak Historical Society was formed by volunteers in 1954 to preserve and share Kodiak’s history. In 1967, the Baranov Museum opened in the Russian American Magazin, the oldest building in Alaska. The Kodiak Historical Society, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, operates the Baranov Museum in partnership with the City of Kodiak.
