They have tons of info on some of the history of Kodiak and explain it's culture and the large tsunami that hit Kodiak way back when. Lots of cool photo books from the tsunami as well that I always flip through when I visit.

This is a good collection of artifacts and information about the native people of the Kodiak region. You can find bigger museums other places, but this one is specialized to this area and is the product of a lot of hard work by local people....More

Museum was informative and really brought WWII information that "lower 48" residents have not been taught. Centrally located and easy access.

This small museum presents an overview of the lives of native Aleutians and provides insights to the history, lives and transistion adapting to the influx of Europeans and then Americans. It is worth the visit to see their art and culture.

Nothing special. Very similar to other Native Alaskan museums. $7 for visit to this small museum. Doesn't require much time even if every display was studied carefully. Close to RO church and Baranov Museum

Small museum but a fine collection of representative art and items telling the story of the local native people.

A small museum, included in the city highlights tour, but a bit expensive for those who just pass by ($7 adm) - 30 mins is plenty of time. Volunteers enthusiastic, worth supporting. Good overview of the Inuit culture.
