“Nice old house from the outside, but not that much to see inside”
Review of The Baranov Museum

Reviewed 4 April 2018

I agree with earlier comments that I was hoping to see more info on the Russian influence in Kodiak and Alaska, but its mainly focused on one family that lived there in the 20th century. Nicely put together though, but I wouldn't recommend it.

We enjoyed popping in to this small museum and the village that it is located in. Kodak is a special place that is like a very northern Hawaii.

Was expecting to see more of the Russian influence showcased in this museum. More focus was on the families that lived here after the Russians left. Very disappointed and it is very small.

We spent a week on Kodiak Island and got kind of tired of all the hiking, hunting, fishing, relaxing, slow paced life, amazing drives, beautiful coast, mountains, wildlife, hanging on 'Island Time', etc etc. (miss it already !) So we decided to visit The Baranov Museum. It is a small place with limited pieces, the entire place took about 15 minutes. You will find some interesting facts about the Island and if your not in a hurry, it could be informative. I'm sure I would have given it a higher rating, if I had taking more time, but we were actually in a hurry to get back to the hiking, hunting, fishing, relaxing, etc ..........

Kinda misty overcast today so took the whole family to this museum. Very small area, some cool artifacts, but not much to see. They should let you go upstairs and explore the rooms, but they say "that's where the administrative offices are"....really?!! a small 200 square foot museum(basically the oldest building in kodiak) needs admin offices??? for what??? anyways it's only $5 and you can kill an hour there. They did have some old picture books about the island and their history, the coolest one had pictures taken of people and ships after the 1912 katmai volcanic explosion, everything was covered in 5 feet of ash. if you do go, check out those books.
