Overview

The Alutiiq Museum preserves and shares the heritage and culture of the Alutiiq people. We are a small, but Nationally-accredited Alaska Native-run museum, archaeological repository, and culture center. Our gallery features exhibits telling the Alutiiq story - the incredible history of the Indigenous, coastal Alaska Native people of the stormy Gulf of Alaska. The Alutiiq Museum Store features an unexpectedly rich offering of authentic Alaska Native art and jewelry, that supports the work of artists from around the archipelago. Our educational programs explore traditional and contemporary Alutiiq arts and skills, and they are open to everyone. We are committed to creating respect and enthusiasm for Alutiiq culture among people of all heritages. Takina! You should Come!

Great small museum with interesting artifacts from the Alutiig people. I really enjoyed watching and listening to the videos as Alutiig reminisced about earlier and present times in their lives.

They have tons of info on some of the history of Kodiak and explain it's culture and the large tsunami that hit Kodiak way back when. Lots of cool photo books from the tsunami as well that I always flip through when I visit.

Museum was informative and really brought WWII information that "lower 48" residents have not been taught. Centrally located and easy access.

We spend an hour learning about the native culture at this museum. It is quite small but had good information. Would have liked more exhibits.
