I guess you could go to Port Alberni and not visit this mill, but you'd be missing a treat. If you have any interest in steam, or sawmilling, or industrial history, or have kids, you have to see this. If you're on a budget, skip the train and just go to the mill. (Although the train ride is great, and well worth the money.) If you are there over lunch, pack your own lunch and grab a chance to talk to the guys running the mill. They're a mine of information. My only complaint was that the train left too soon. I could have watched the mill operate for hours.
