Visitor Information


The Cannery offers parking (paid) and bus drop-off. There is limited free street parking throughout Steveston village. Buses for groups booked in advance may receive a parking pass; please indicate upon booking that a pass will be required.


Photography with flash and video recording is permitted for personal use only, with hand-held equipment. If you would like to take photos or videos inside the museum for commercial purposes, please contact Visitor Services in advance.


Due to our building’s unique placement over the water and historic architecture, it is colder inside the Cannery than it is outdoors; please dress appropriately.


Food and drink are not permitted inside the museum.

Admissions are valid for the full day; visitors may exit and enter during same day open hours.

Pets are not permitted inside the museum.


The site is fully wheelchair accessible. However, due to the historic construction of the building, the floor boards may be uneven in some areas. Please contact us for more information on-site accessibility by email or phone 604.664.9009.

We are currently developing an Activity Storybook for guests with autism or other sensory-processing differences to help prepare for a visit to the Cannery. In the meantime, here is a link to a virtual 3-D map of the public spaces in the Gulf of Georgia Cannery National Historic Site.
