Starting on Victoria Day long weekend to Labour Day (May 22 to September 4, 2017), we will offer the Cannery Experience, including guided tours of the permanent exhibits; salmon tastings; costumed heritage interpreters; and scheduled canning line machine demonstrations, in addition to all the other interactive exhibits and programming to enhance your museum visit. During our Fall/Winter season (September to April), please check our daily program schedule at the Front Desk, to find out what’s happening on the day of your visit.
Offered year-round, learn about the Gulf of Georgia Cannery’s permanent exhibits with a guided tour, or explore at your leisure with a self-guided exhibit map. A 15 minute introductory film Journey Through Time, telling the story of the West Coast fishing industry through the eyes of a young girl and her grandfather, is available by request. The current feature exhibit, The Pull of the Net: Commercial Fishing in Canada, will show daily from May 6, 2017 to 2019.
A variety of community and cultural events are held at the Cannery. Please visit Events to find the latest information about what’s happening. If you are interested in holding a special event at the Cannery, please see Rentals.
