The Kodiak Refuge Visitor Center is located in downtown Kodiak. This facility is open year-round to the public and is the crossroads of conservation and education for Kodiak Refuge and our conservation partners. We offer fun and educational exhibits and programs, as well as travelling and other temporary exhibits, film festivals and artist receptions (free and open to the public). A feature of the Visitor Center is our award-winning 12-minute orientation film, available for screening on-demand, and the re-articulated gray whale skeleton. The Visitor Center also offers a downtown meeting space for local conservation-oriented organizations. For more information about scheduling workshops and other events, please contact the Visitor Center Manager at 907-487-0282 or call our information desk at 907-487-2626.
