About the Program
What was life like for the people who lived and worked in one of BC’s cannery towns? After a tour of our canning line exhibit, the cannery’s general store serves as the backdrop for a history mystery. Students will work in teams to discover the identity of six cannery workers. Conversations with store clerks, documents, and artifact replicas provide the clues that reveal the personal story of these workers and highlight their treatment in BC’s fishing industry.
What to Wear
The Cannery is a historical site built on top of water, and does not have indoor heating. Please dress warmly! It can be very cool inside even when the temperature is pleasant outdoors.
The interpreters appreciate student name tags to help with asking questions, but this is not a requirement.
