Since we stayed at Pier 39, we visited this museum right before leaving. It's interesting how the old way of packing fish into cans is shown here. There really isn't much of a historical significance but it was fun seeing an old safe with a funny back story.
Even tho it is free, it is not worth your time unless you want to read endless posters of densely packed information about the Bumble Bee cannery that used to operate here. There is also a jumble of equipment scattered through several rooms but nothing is labeled so you don’t know what you are looking at. The best part was... 更多
truly amazing to see the pictures from long ago and what the fishermen back then went through to catch tuna. After seeing how many they caught it's no wonder there are hardly any left. The museum is small but it's packed with things to see.
A very nice museum on the pier. Good place to get out of the sun! Very interesting place. Excellent displays and photographs. No entry fee!
We went to the Bumble Bee Cannery Museum which was very fun to go to. Its free and one just walks in the door. We opted to see the TV documentary that they did many years ago on the plant. That was very fun to see. They also have another film on fishing and other things. The museum is a... 更多
As a museum, it is a work in progress, obviously dependent on low or no budget and a few volunteers. Their story is an important one and visitors should drive out on the wooden pier (shared with a restaurant) at the foot of 39th street. The museum area is on the right, enter through the large truck entrance and turn... 更多
This little museum was quite small and rustic, but still very interesting. We're glad we visited it. We found it sad to see the loss of the business for the local area, and also the loss of the industry for the USA.
Just driving up to this place is special as you go slowly over an extended pier to the parking lot! Admission is free. It is a very rustic building, no frills, but the old videos and photos have so much information that 98% of the general,public have no idea how the tuna and salmon are processed for canning. It was... 更多
If you are interested in the history of fish canning in Astoria, this is a great place. But the displays, though informative, need a professional make-over to make this a great museum. It is located in an old part of the former cannery, and consists of three rooms. The first two have interesting video loops of old (early 1960s in... 更多
We were eating dinner on the pier and decided to stop in at this museum. It is small and doesn't take very long to see. I am not sure we would have stopped if we weren't already there. The drive on the old wooden pier was a treat though.
