Member Spotlight: Kodiak Historical Society and Baranov Museum
The Kodiak Historical Society and Baranov Museum are honored to host the September Chamber of Commerce Business After Hours event and welcome people to enjoy our National Historic Landmark facility and current exhibits.
As stewards of Kodiak's history, the Baranov Museum is a place for locals and visitors alike to view objects and photographs illustrating the richness of Kodiak's story, a place for researchers and historians to investigate historical events, and a place for individuals to deepen their connection to the place we call home.
The museum is in a meaningful time of transition as they prepare to renovate their permanent exhibits and make much needed upgrades to the facility. While the redesign will continue to feature the historical significance of the building, it will also professionalize our exhibits and showcase a more comprehensive and inclusive view of Kodiak's history.
The September Chamber of Commerce After Hours event will feature the benefits of business and individual membership at the museum, guided tours of the upstairs, wonderful door prizes, and tasty hors d'oeuvres. This is a perfect opportunity to tour the museum for a last look before the grand reopening. Whether you've never been to the Baranov or you're an avid supporting member, all are encouraged and welcome to come.
