Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed June 23, 2012

Has a lot of old canning machinery, and fishing gear. Has some great blue prints of old fishing boats, including several on-site. Not very big, but in a building so it's great for a rainy day.

If you and your kids like to watch the sea lions, this is the place to go. The history of the cannery and the lives of the men and women that worked at the cannery was very interesting. There is a nice little coffee shop to sit and watch the sea lions play and the boats go by.

This was a very interesting museum at the end of a pier. I didn't even realize that there used to be a Bumble Bee cannery there at one time (it's now in China, unfortunately). Has a lot of interesting displays. My wife and I enjoyed it. Be sure to visit Coffee Girl. We had hot chocolate and a great dessert there.

Was great to see how they used to process tuna. We enjoyed looking around.

Go to the 39th street and drive across the bridge to the cannery. This use to be the Bumbee Tuna Factory before everything moved to China. If you eat at the Rogue Beer brewery,you will find a little museum in the back about the cannery. Walk back to the bathroom and you will be walking back in time to parts of the Bumbee Cannery. We ate at the restaurant and it was wonderful. My husband enjoyed the dark beers.The cheese burgers and fish in chips were very good...We meet the owner of the cannery and he was trying to put different offices and shops in the old building. The views are beautiful and we saw Seals also.
