The SS Princess Sophia Exhibition commemorates the 100th anniversary of the tragic sinking of the Princess Sophia, in which everyone on board lost their lives. The Princess Sophia traveled from her home port in Victoria, BC up to Skagway, AK, with stops along the way. Communities in BC, Yukon, and Alaska relied quite heavily on this route to travel. When tragedy struck, all three jurisdictions were irrevocably impacted and in unique ways.

Now, 100 years later, the three jurisdictions are uniting to commemorate this marine disaster that took more than 350 lives and affected countless more. Have a look through to learn about the history of the Princess Sophia, as well as details for the Exhibition including travelling plans, partnering organizations, and ways to get involved. Be a part of the commemoration and help us set a lasting legacy for the future.

Opens March 31st thru May 6th!
