A wonderful place to photograph old buildings while learning about the fish canning past. Also, a great place to view trains, - model and actual ones passing by.

“History comes alive....”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 24, 2013

The NPC Museum was well worth a visit. The guide was knowledgeable and patiently answered questions about the people, the buildings, and the machinery used at the Cannery in the early 1900's. The different housing for different groups of people was fascinating - the Chinese, Japanese, Europeans, and First Nations all had their own bunkhouses - the managers houses are also well maintained.

“Very nice place to visit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 10, 2013

I love to visit this place, to learn more about the history of this historic site. The guide was kind and know well the informations to give us. Unfortunately, the restaurant was close when I went there, I would have like to pass more time and eat there some fish! I took a lot of pictures, the landscape around is awesome. The price for the visit is nice, but the souvenirs are expensive.
I think it is a place not to miss if you go to Prince Rupert, you will learn a lots about the history of this part of country.

“Really interesting and worth visiting”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 30, 2013

I recommend a visit here as it was much more interesting than I anticipated. Give yourself enough time as there are two tours and we only had time for one of them but the tours really help you to understand the way the cannery was run and how it has changed through the years. Our guide was very knowledgeable.
