The SS Princess Sophia Exhibit is on display in the Yukon Arts Centre Public Gallery until Nov 24.

That day, we invite you to come out to see the exhibit before it leaves! We'll be offering guided tours, and other drop-in activities as we celebrate the privilege of having this wonderful event in our space.

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 its 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 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. Presented in partnership with the Maritime Museum of B.C., Vancouver Maritime Museum, Alaska State Museum.
