The Baranov Museum inhabits one of the only four Russian-built structures that remain in the country today. It was built in the early 1800?s by Aleksander Baranov as a fur warehouse. Today, it is the only log building in Kodiak that remains on its original site. It is also the only Russian structure that serves as a warehouse for the commercial activities of the Alaska Commercial Company and the Russian American Company. Both of these organizations have contributed to the development of northwestern America through administration, commerce, exploration, and law enforcement.

At the Museum, visitors will get to discover Kodiak?s history through exhibits, both temporary and permanent, special events, and educational programs. They can gain more knowledge on the rich history of Kodiak, ranging from the Alutiiq culture to the Russian colonial period.
