Mission Statement

The Kodiak Historical Society creates opportunities for the public to explore the cultural, natural, and artistic heritage of Kodiak Island and its neighboring communities.  The collections we preserve, interpret and exhibit are catalysts in the learning process, and the Museum is a meeting place where knowledge is discovered, shared and exchanged.

Overview

Self-reported by organization

In the past year we have completed a multi-year effort to preserve and protect the National Historic Landmark building in which the Baranov Museum is housed.  Preservation work included the installation of a fire suppression system, new electrical and lighting systems, window restoration, and repair and painting of the exterior redwood siding to better protect the envelope of the buidling.

In the year ahead we hope to develop a long-range conservation program for the collections and continue a collections re-housing project to provide safe storage for the 2,000 objects and artifacts cared for at the Baranov Museum.

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Program 1

We conserve and exhibit artifacts, artwork, photographs and documents from the Kodiak archipelago. We provide interpretive tours for museum visitors - open daily in the summer and five days a week in the winter. We sponsor a calendar year of free outreach programming for the Kodiak community such as Attu basket weaving classes, children?s art activities, historical lectures and forums, literature readings, and art receptions. We are the managers of Kodiak's 200-year-old National Historic Landmark building known as the Russian American Magazin, and we support historic preservation efforts in our community.

Program 2

Object Conservation

The Baranov Museum is committed to providing the highest level of collections care within our National Historic Landmark building in a manner that is complementary to the objects and the structure.  To this end we have initiated a multi-year collections re-housing project.  We seek to employ conservation graduate students for summer internships.  We contract with professional Objects Conservators for necessary treatments.
