New name, same mission: Baranov Museum rebranded

Posted: Friday, April 19, 2019 8:59 am

When it reopens following an extensive renovation of its permanent exhibit space on May 4, the Baranov Museum will have a new name that better reflects its mission, according to a news release from the Kodiak Historical Society. 

The Historical Society’s board of directors voted to change the name to Kodiak History Museum it better conveys the broad Kodiak history that is encapsulated at the museum. The Baranov Museum name, according to the release, misrepresents the museum’s mission and place in the community as it doesn’t focus on Russian history alone.
