The Visitor Center is closed to the public


Stop by to visit us and learn more about Kodiak wildlife and ecosystems in our exhibit hall, be amazed by the complete skeleton of a 36 foot Gray Whale, or catch a summer interpretive talk by our park rangers. Maps and pamphlets, including an island Bird List, are available at the information desk, and we also have an award-winning 12 minute film about the refuge available for screening on demand.

Our partner bookstore, Alaska Geographic, offers natural history-themed books, cards, gifts and educational curios. Memberships to Alaska Geographic are available at the Visitor Center, and a portion of all sales directly support Refuge education and outreach programs. If you want to know more about Alaska Geographic, please contact the Kodiak Branch Manager, 907-487-0284.

The Visitor Center regularly hosts educational programs and talks.
