Very cool to be there as a large ship goes through the canal and under the bridge. The museum is full of interesting exhibits and displays a schedule of the ships going through. You can also check http://duluthshippingnews.com/ for a schedule, webcams and much more. Call Boatwatchers Hotline, 24 hours a day at: (218) 722-6489 for the most up-to-date schedule.
It is incredible how quietly the bridge goes up (except for a warning bell) and how quietly a 1,000 foot, fully loaded ship is. That is until the ship sounds its horn and the bridge replies -- that gets your attention!
