  • Cute museum with some great exhibits. The museum staff were friendly and helpful. My favorite exhibit was the model lock with water and all. Good use of model landscapes and artifacts from the era. Has a very good walk with 5 locks, all of which are in pretty good shape considering they've been out of commission for over one hundred years. I was impressed by the snubbing posts that were still on site. The walk is a leisurely half mile. I'd make sure to bring tick spray as it is pretty well wooded. The museum staff told us they will be moving from their current location to a larger building closer to the 5 lock walk, next year (2020). Looking forward to checking out again next year.
  • Wonderful exhibits on an amazing feat of engineering and a little-known but vital piece of American economic and social history. Highly recommended.
