  • History at its finest. Very historic
  • Amazing place
  • Great Place. It gives a really good idea of what life in Steveston was like before the current age. The displays are well done and there is lot information to read. The gift shop is also very large and well stocked for a historic site of this size. They have also worked hard to include some things to keep the kids interested. There is also a lot of interesting machinery to look at for the adults with many displays.
