North Pacific Cannery tour

Ability to see an industry I knew little about. Good food in the cafe. Lots of birds. Interesting tour. Able to take public transit from downtown Prince Rupert.

This site has a long way to go to complete the restoration. But they are making great strides towards that end. While you can do a self guided tour I would recommend you go with the guides as they can give so much more, especially if one of your guides has had relatives and friends who worked there when it...

My girlfriend and children went to this historic site. The 100 year old buildings were amazing to see with all the history behind this gem. Road is a bit small. It is worth the drive as it is a beautiful setting. Makes sure to bring your jacket as the weather changes quickly and can be chilly in the spring. A... More

Probably some variation in the quality of the tour guide as we were more pleased with the first than second half of our tour. The site was scenic and very interesting. We were shown the two different stages of equipment, when it was done primarily by hand and when machinery was introduced as well. Preservation and restoration efforts are ongoing.... More

2 great tours. So informative and very enlightening on the historic conditions of their workers. Both our guides were excellent. The cafe have great hot chocolate too!

On a clear and sunny day we went 40+ km out of our way to visit the Cannery Musem. On arrival around noon we found it closed. None of the signs directing us to the Cannery from the Yellowhead Highway indicated that it was closed. Compensation was that Ww did enjoy a picnic lunch in the sunshine at the nearby... More

A work in progress...but on the road to being a stellar historical presentation of an important industry in days gone by.

Great place! I've been to a lot of museums in Canada and the USA,but I've never been to a cannery museum before. Not a flashy museum with lots of nice paint, bright lights, manicured lawns, uniformed attendants, and boring materials from the past. Here you will see the real thing -- a cannery on the ocean shore complete with old... More

guided tours meant that we were given lots of very interesting information, especially the details of how the cannery operated, but also some of the social history. takes about 90 mins- 2 hours to do depending on how many tours you do.

We were advised to take the city bus out to the cannery. It would be an expensive taxi ride. Staff was very professional and informative. There is a lot to see and hear about. We loved it. It drizzled the whole time we were there, but we just put up our hoods and carried on. Don't know if youngsters would... More
