The Gulf Of Georgia Cannery Museum is located inside an historic cannery in British Columbia’s Steveston Cannery district, a National Historic Site. 3DS restored and showcased a number of original artifacts, recreated others, developed interpretive exhibits and staged all of it in this long-inactive salmon cannery.
The museum’s centerpiece is a massive interactive map exhibit, made of solid wood and wired with LED lights. Shown on the map are the three remaining canneries that comprise BC’s entire canning industry today. A push of a button activates an array of lights that show the more than one hundred canneries originally in operation during the canning heyday of the 1930’s and 40’s.
