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

This little museum was quite interesting and is a 'donation' museum too. They had 2 videos going that were quite informative and required time to watch. Neat little place.

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

Fun little museum we stumbled into tucked within Pier 39. Very informative and paired with a stopped at Coffee Girl it made for a great stop.

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.
