The Baranov Museum has many ways for volunteers to work with the public or behind the scenes, from special events to maintaining our beautiful gardens to leading tours through our historic building and exhibitions. 

  • Docents provide visitors with educational tours to enhance their understanding of Kodiak’s cultural history.
  • Collections assistants help in documenting the permanent collection, cleaning and storing artifacts, and researching collections.
  • Researchers review, update, and index our research files.
  • Retail assistants help with the display and sale of the Baranov Museum store merchandise.

We continue to grow and thrive through the efforts of our many dedicated volunteers. If you are interested in volunteering at the Baranov Museum, please call 486-5920 or email

Thank you to our volunteers!
