Kodiak History Museum
in 2019, the Kodiak Historical Society completed a $750,000 Permanent Exhibits Redesign and Facility Upgrade Project with generous support from the City of Kodiak, Murdock Charitable Trust, Rasmuson Foundation and the community of Kodiak. The redesigned community center feature collaborative, community driven, approachable permanent exhibits that showcase Kodiak’s history.
Our mission is to facilitate exploration of the natural, cultural, and artistic heritage of Kodiak Island and surrounding communities to create opportunities for the public to discover, share, and exchange knowledge using the collections and resources made available through the operation of the Kodiak History Museum.
The Day by Day Project
The COVID-19 pandemic is historic.
Help us create a collection of digital files that represent our experience in Kodiak–a day by day view of this history for years to come.
You can submit photographs, mandates, speeches, audio recordings, personal histories, thoughts, and feelings, letters, notices and signs, social media posts, screenshots, memes…Anything you think that helps represent this history on Kodiak! Visit the Day by Day Project to learn more.
We Need Your Help!
Our team is getting ready for a big pivot to serve our communities 100% remotely while the museum is closed. Without admissions, store sales, and educational programming revenue–we need your support more than ever. Please consider making a gift or becoming a member to support the museum’s mission to preserve and share Kodiak’s history. Quyanaa!
