this is a small detour from the main tourist attractions. It covers a little history of the Erie canal, explains how the early businesses used the water as their energy source (before electricity!!), how they constructed the tunnel and a quick boat ride to show the capacity and length of the tunnel. The guide, Nate, was local and knew the history of the town and answered all of our questions, we have been to many caves and canals and power plants ( ex. Hoover dam). He was not stumped! It took around 1 1/2 hours total and was well done. There is a bit of walking so be prepared, it is not set up for handicapped but otherwise a great stop
