  • Did not know that this attraction was closed when we went to visit. They closed very early in the day and we could not visit any buildings. We were disappointed.  more »

  • We love visiting North Pacific Cannery each year. The site and location are majestic and I always learn new things each time I take the guided tours. Additionally, the restoration work over the past handful of years has been a fascinating transformation to save this historical site. Each time we go out there are new pieces of the puzzle that have been safely and accurately restored.
  • Had a surprisingly great time here! Well worth the drive out, a gorgeous setting and a well maintained and laid out exhibit.
  • Great pics! We delivered fuel there by tanker in the late '50's.
  • Great place
  • Very interesting! Well worth having a look at! Extremely informed folks making the visit very worthwhile!
