Although it was absolutely pouring with rain we found this visit very interesting. You have access to nearly all the buildings that comprised the canning factory and can go round on your own or with a guide.

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.
