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

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

Great tours - very information and great to see some old equipment and machinery working, old processes explained and cultural information too. They are restoring and rebuilding more areas, so it should only get better.

The cannery museum gives insight into the way people lived. These were some awesome insights. Thankfully, our lives are not this challenging anymore. I enjoyed the tours and I don't even like fish - canned or otherwise. The guides were enthusiastic and interesting.
