We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to this museum - much more to it than we expected. It gives you a very effective overview of what life would have been like working at one of these canneries.

We have visited other canneries, and this is the only one that is truly complete with equipment and buildings that have all been restored. The group tour guide was wonderful. She made the tour a delight. Well worth a visit.
