What a cool lift lock. There is a neat little museum at the lift lock that gives the history. It's close to downtown, and they offer river tours.

Explanation of the Trent water system and the.Peterborough lift lock specifically well done. Not a big attraction but very unique. Don't expect to see a boat in the lock. It may not be in use at time of your visit. Still very interesting and worth seeing especially for the engineering type.

It was a perfect day, the staff were friendly, professional and knowledgeable. It was lovely not having a pre-recorded commentary. The hydraulic lift lock was very impressive.

We took a morning cruise with this company. Although the primary purpose of the tour is to go through the lift lock I expected to see a little more scenery and hear about the area. Really, it is a short distance covered spaced out by a lot of waiting to get into and out of the locks. If you are in love with locks or have not been through one before, by all means go for it. However, if you are expecting more, you will be disappointed.

This is a fantastic thing to see. It is the highest lift in canada, and amazing to watch it lift a boat up. We watched a cruise boat of the lifts enter and be lifted up. It also has information all about the lift, about who designed it, how it came about, etc in the welcome centre. If in Peterborough ypu go and see it. And no charge to view it.
