We spent an hour learning more about the history of Kodiak and the Russian influence during the fur trading days. Good exhibits and lots of interesting information. Hours are limited so be sure to check.

Spent over 1 hour taking in the history on display. The staff was not very helpful. Staff was on phones and only paid attention when we stood in front of them.

Hosed in an old home near the water this was a nice gem of local history and friendly staff. Lots of good info about what life was like in Old Kodiak.
