An excellent experience to go back to the hay-day of pacific northwest fish cannery days. Tours take you through the cannery operation and the living quarters of the cannery. Great photo ops and a beautiful setting. Hard to imagine that such operations dotted the cosastline in the early 1900's. This is the best example of that time and place.

Great guides, interesting tours. One guide lived there as did her relatives going back, so she knew a lot of interesting stories. The train lay-out was highlight for my husband, he was like a little boy! I enjoyed the café and parts of the cannery were very photogenic. Great for adults and kids alike.

Very neat to see how things used to be. We very much enjoyed seeing everything in tact. The kids especially loved the model train!

We took the city bus out to the Cannery, and really enjoyed learning about the history. The buildings have been well preserved.

We went there by public bus from Prince Rupert, and it worked out great. The 3 hours before the next bus came by to drive us back were well used! Definitely take the tours (they are included in the price, and it allows you to see rooms that are usually locked... plus the guides are really well informed!). Great insights... More

So glad they kept this place! Walking thru it gives you an idea of how this cannery was run. Lots of history and they are still working on it to show people more. Important to keep places like this to educate people!

A little out of the way, but not much to do in Prince Rupert, so we went. Interesting tour, neat late 1800's early 1900"s buildings. In the process of renovating a lot of the outlying buildings, so should be more to see as time goes on.

We were here about 20 years ago and were delighted to see the improvements. More buildings open to the public, exteriors refurbished - tax dollars well spent! This is what British Columbia is all about - fishing, along with forestry and mining We took both tours - advisable, as others have attested, for more history along with entrance to more... More

This place is like going back in time, well I guess as any museum is. The guide we had gave a wonderful rendition of how it all started and kept us well informed how everything had progressed from when it all started back in 1890 with the introduction of the local Indians to the Europeans, Japanese and the chinese.
