Maritime Museum

Located on Kodiak Island, the Maritime Museum exists to preserve and showcase the island’s extensive maritime heritage. Though the museum doesn’t actually feature a physical display room, this “museum without walls” does provide virtual exhibits – including Kodiak, Vessels of Kodiak, Pacific Salmon, and Alaskan Crab Fishing exhibits – on their website.

Physical exhibits can be found throughout the Kodiak community, like the “Crabbing” and “Trapped!” exhibits at Kodiak College and the Kodiak Waterfront Exhibit overlooking St. Paul Harbor. Moreover, visitors can enjoy frequent educational events hosted by the Maritime Museum as well.
