What a great way to spend an hour or two! So picturesque, so interesting! Loved hearing the stories and seeing the homes of the workers. Excellent tour....informative and entertaining. Well worth the admission price!

Really interesting slice of history. Take the tour! Lots of machinery and stories that make you glad you did not have to work in a cannery a hundred years ago. This is a well preserved and presented museum.

Wasn't planning to see another cannery tour but with nothing to do, went in. The young man guide,William was indeed good. His presentation gave me a better background to the place, cannery business, railway, ethnic attitudes, Canadian history etc. Good job William!
