  • We did an early morning drive to this place. It opens at 10am. From the roadside, this is the real deal -- actual former plant with buildings intact. The view of the surroundings is lovely. Worth a quick drive out of the way to see this.
  • Great place to stop. It was closed when we visited but walking around the grounds was interesting and informative.
  • 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.
