  • Not a huge museum, but the view from the tower was fantastic. Also be sure to watch the 15 minute history video. Very well produced.  more »
  • Great overview of the area and into Canada. It was pretty cool to see some ship coming into the locks from way up there.  more »

  • Interesting stop on our trip to Sault Ste. Marie for the locks and the lake shore. In combination with the freighter museum, it was a nice end to our stay. Loved the Native American display as we entered... lovely bead work!
  • Great place to view the locks/river
