  • A very cool museum highlighting Whittier and PWS throughout the modern era, focusing mostly on WW2 and the earthquake / tsunamis. Certainly worth doing.

  • Small little museum, but a must see if you are interested in WWII. We enjoyed reading and learning about the role Alaska played in WWII!

  • At $5/adult (minors are free), this small museum is totally worth it. It's densely packed with information about the history of Whittier (more interesting than you might expect) and about the area's involvement in WWII with both Russian and Japanese forces. Plus there are seats in the hall that are dry and can be a place to wait out of the rain. Restrooms are next door/across the lot in the Anchor Inn. The museum is in a building with a convenience store that sells most anything you might need.
  • Well worth the stop. Just 5 dollars. Cases filled with WW2 and details of lesser known histiry. Much hard work has been invested in each exhibit. Thanks!
