“Great Place for Family's to Visit or for Picture Taking”
Reviewed August 22, 2013

This is a must see when in the Soo. The visitor center is well thought out and accessible. The viewing building for the locks is well designed and allows for different picture taking opportunities. I enjoyed seeing a tug bring in a barge - and got to experience the locks working first hand. Got some great pictures. The park like atmosphere adds to the whole overall experience. Worth doing.

“Fascinating”
Reviewed August 22, 2013

I thoroughly enjoyed watching the freighters going thru the locks and never tired of them. The observation deck and visitor's center were a big asset to the trip.

“The Ships!”

The Ships!, and the museum, the staff was very knowledgeable and helpful. The viewing platform was cool, could see right into the ships and talk to the sailors.

“The Soo”
Reviewed August 21, 2013

Our experience was unexpectedly great. A steel cargo ship arrived unexpectedly and we had a front row viewing experience. The timing could not have been better.
