Came across this by accident but I'm glad I did! The old Bumble Bee Factory museum has loads of info on the canning industry back in the day on the Astoria waterfront. Look at old fishing boats, gear, maps, photos and, of course, tuna canning...More

The "museum" is really just some old rusty equipment on display. Not very well done. I'm certain it's worth learning about, but these displays didn't pull me in or inform me of much.

This is a free self guided read as you go tour. It is an educational trip back to when the salmon canneries were the prime source of employment and commerce in Astoria. Inside an out of the elements so good tour for any weather.

The large old former cannery building, was filled with boats, canning machinery, photos, a few films, informative signs, some handwritten. There were no guides nor people to answer questions--it's an interesting place to wander and learn, right on the waterfront.

Free museum, worth stopping by to see. Old processing equipment and some good film clips showing what the cannery was like when in operation.

Traversing the pier (39) was an adventure itself, and once out there- trying to find the museum was another challenge- but really well worth it. The short films, and the visual poster series were the highlights for me, and I was surprised by the number...More
