The Baranov Museum, run by the Kodiak historical society, is housed in a lovely building that's the oldest wooden, Russian-built house in Kodiak. While it covers the history of settlement in the area generally, it also has a particularly good, interactive display about the 1964 tsunami that devastated the area. The museum also has a lovely little gift shop that includes a number of hand carved, hand painted Russian items, including matryoshka (nesting) dolls, along with interesting indigenous craft items and the usual array of books, jewelry, and whatnot, including a nice selection of children's books.
