Cannery Boathouse

Cannery Boat Museum
Volunteer inside the cannery.

The cannery was first built as a warehouse and converted to a state-of-the-art cannery for cherries in the early 1920s. In recent years, the Cannery has housed a museum of historic boats used around Glen Haven and the Manitou Islands. Volunteers have donated many hours to restoring the boats and operating the exhibit. The Cannery Boathouse Museum is the largest public exhibit of Great Lakes small craft.

The Cannery is open 11 am - 5pm daily, Memorial Day weekend through Labor Day. Days and hours vary after Labor Day. Volunteer staff provide interpretive talks and answers questions

Public restrooms are available by the Glen Haven General Store
