Located within the Anchor Inn Hotel, the Prince William Sound Museum is a tribute to Alaska’s many legends. It is a small but interesting museum that will give you an in-depth look at Whittier’s history. The museum has been collecting and displaying exhibits and artifacts which tell the story of the area’s rail terminal, military port, and its heritage during the Cold War and World War II. There are thirty-two exhibits dedicated to events such as the building of the Whittier Tunnel. One of the most interesting artifacts housed at the museum is a highly-detailed, museum grade model of the S.S. Northwestern which was built in 1889, used in trade routes with Cuba, and was lost during the Dutch Harbor attack in 1942.
