We had a quick late lunch at Rogue. When I walked to the bathroom (a long walk), I found the museum! I was so excited to go through it after our meal. What a cool educational experience. I love all the photos and videos.

Pier 39 is an essential stop. In addition to the cannery there is a restaurant, a coffee shop, a bar, great viewing of the river and sea lions and a history wall. The cannery has so much history - the very first cannery in the...More

This is a wander through it on your own place. You see old salmon and tuna canning machinery and some old camera interviews when the cannery was in operation. You have to drive across a wood plank bridge to the cannery.

I didn't expected here to find a free museum. There is no fee. You just walk in and tour on your own. Most likely no one would be there. It is a very interesting location. But the most exiting is getting to it by car...More

Located in the original cannery building by the seashore. Very little to see - some old machinery, newspaper clippings from the time the cannery was in operation. Nobody available to answer questions. Took a big 30 minutes to stroll through. Parking on cannery pier is...More
