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. 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 sponsored; costumed heritage interpreters; and scheduled canning line machine demonstrations, in addition to all the other interactive exhibits and programming to enhance your museum 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.
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.
