“Yep it's a big bridge”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2013

This is a Duluth land mark and must see. We have driven over it several times but this trip we did not. You don't have to hang around very long to see it go up and that is pretty cool. Great stop and must see in Duluth!

“Fun to See”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2013

It's fun to see and there's a nice park by it also. I'm sure kids would really enjoy it. It's a nice walk along the shore line.

“Very impressive”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2013

Go in the Army Corp of Engineers office and they have a schedule of when the boats are arriving and departing. It is cool when the boats are going under the bridge.

“Fascinating”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2013

We called the hot line to learn when ships would be coming in (or out) of the canal. We watched a huge ship enter the canal and go under the bridge. It is fascinating.

“Amazing to watch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2013

It's really cool to watch the bridge go up for the big boats coming in and going out. There is a schedule you can check or ask in the museum when the next arrival/departure is. It's free and fun to watch this Duluth icon in action.
