This museum has some interesting artifacts. It's a worthwhile few hours to walk around the Kodiak 'museum district' and see this site along with the Alutiiq Museum, Orthodox church, and visitors' center. Between the three they add up to a respectable museum experience.

Very cool artifacts from the native era, the Russian era and the American era. I was surprised at the quality of this little place. Definitely worth the stop if you like history and culture.

We were only in Kodiak for a limited time, so we missed the opportunity to see this museum. From the pics and reviews we missed some interesting displays and information.

This was a small museum with several rooms of the house open for viewing. What made the visit special was one of the docents talking about her experiences of the great Alaska earthquake of 1964 along with the history of the house.

An excellent place to get local history on the Alutiq culture as well as some of the Russian influence on Kodiak. Even the building is historic. A very nice morning or afternoon outing. Take a look at this site as at least a short visit...More

The earliest Russian building on Kodiak, made out of spruce logs and protected by later redwood siding, this little building gives a taste of early Kodiak, and pictures of the 1964 9.2 earthquake. Thankfully, the tsunami didn't reach here. We bought a lovely little imported...More

Although it's a house it was also a warehouse and the oldest standing building on Kodiak island. Tells of the Russian portion of Kodiak and Alaskan history. The grounds are lovely with many locals using it as a park or picnics. Great views of downtown...More

A small museum in one of the Kodiak homesteaders' homes, and includes Alutiiq, Russian and early American artifacts. The 1800s sealskin canoe is well-preserved and the two rooms showing a kitchen and sitting room were the only history we had seen on our Alaskan trip,...More

This place is worth a visit. Good depiction of early Russian settlers and the evolution of the town. The building itself is an archeological marvel.

A great history lesson with many artifacts from when the area was ruled by Russia. Learn how they lived and worked. Well worth the time on the wonderful island
