Worth your time to drive over to see. Museum is ok but walking on the pier with hot Chia tea from the Coffee Girl was nice and great scenes on the water.

Best thing - the attraction is free. Do visit this place to learn about the cannery activities in the bygone area. Great exhibition and educational. There are a lot of nice exhibits. Glad to see the city investing to preserve the history of this place.

A must visit to Pier 39. History of a small canning facility here in historic Pier 39. Tour this small museum and check out the other businesses that are also available to the visitor.
