The Sitka Sound Science Center Retail Shop is a fantastic place to get gifts and gear for all the ocean-loving people in your life.  Located in the historic Mill Building next door to the Science Center, our retail shop is full of great finds: beautiful apparel and accessories, classy decor and dining ware, books, cards, and more.

If you didn’t get a chance to visit our retail shop, or just want to see even more beautiful Science Center swag, you can shop online at our online store.


After you’re done shopping and your stomach is growling, make sure to get a delicious bowl of Ludvig’s famous chowder or a scrumptious sandwich from Ludvig’s Chowder Cart.  Located in the Mill Building right next to the retail store, Ludvig’s is a Sitka specialty.  Ludvig’s is also now serving barbecued salmon with kale and brown rice.
