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!

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.

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.

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.

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.
