Summer Tours are Back – Revamped!

We are thrilled to announce that the Cannery Experience tours are back for the summer! Now including a brand new tour that dives deeper into the experiences of the people who worked at the Canneries.

Visitors can join regularly scheduled guided tours and meet our costumed interpreters starting Saturday, May 21, with tours continuing all summer until Labour Day, 2022.

Our Cannery Experience summer tours have something for everyone! Learn about the history and resilience of the communities behind the canning line with Cannery People. For our historical technology lovers, join us for Machine Demo and watch a restored 1930s – 1950s era canning line at work, or walk among the massive equipment of our 6,500 sq. ft. exhibit with Herring Reduction.
