  • Loved the visit. Lots to see. Don't drive by without stopping. Highly recommend. Definitely shows history of the canning business and the people who worked in it.
  • An unusual and intriguing setting for a museum. Informal setting in an old Bumble Bee tuna canning factory on Pier 39. Industrial history about the equipment and the people of the industry.
