This was a real let down, and somewhat boring. Very little history but friendly staff. The locks were closed the day we went. Boats are clean and well kept. I would not recommend this to anyone

A few years ago, this tour had sailed from a different location and toured the deeper upper lock. Now, the Minneapolis Queen sails from Bohemian Flats Park and tours the lower lock, but also provides great views of St. Anthony Falls, the historic mills district,...More
