One of the best museum I have ever been to. So much to see. You have to take several lefts and rights to be able catch it all. The staff is eager to tell you the history of the Cannery and the bay. The price of entry is affordable and if you are under 18 you get in free. I'll definitely be back soon.
Awesome, really neat place and experience of important history! The staff was really really really nice and went out of their way to give us a great experience! Thank you Tara! We had the opportunity to see the canning line demonstration which was a bonus. Highly recommended for anyone interested in history.
