  • This lock has a small but wonderful museum with area history and artifacts that is well worth a visit. The young man on duty was truly helpful and informative about travel through the locks. Having been through the larger visitor center before, this was a wonderful option that added to our trip.
  • Went to Lock 7 with our 5 kids and saw both a northbound and southbound ship in the locks. It was so cool and a great way to spend 45 minutes. The young woman in the museum/shop was also super-friendly. Definitely worth a visit and make sure to look online to make sure you are there when a laker is coming through.
