    With friends, I have visited the fiber optic and also the environment. Of course, there is the old boat lift in the foreground. But the exhibition includes not only the description of the history and technology of this attraction, but also many other information related to shipping. That's the selling point. The water playground and the swings are something for the young or young at heart. Class. Since I have taken the time to me during this visit, I come once again with more time in the luggage. The highlight is still the new boat lift outside the fiber optic premises. You should watch this boat lift necessarily... live.

    The whole system is divided in the old boat lift and in the new part of (Gates Park). It is definitely recommended to visit both parts. In particular the small but fine exhibition, which explains the mechanics of the lift with a model is very well resolved. Here, 6 daughter was very excited and interested. For the tour again in a "chapeau" to the Scheduler: In the Tower on the side of the parking lot goes it up (but not backward), in the Tower on the other side goes it down (but not up). A great solution to not constantly to stand on their feet or to squeeze past to other interested parties. The entire mechanism of the lift is from the bottom roll up top - and besichtigenbar. This museum in particular boasts a high on availability of the respective exhibits and mechanics: it stands in front of it and gets so an excellent impression of the overall architecture. So, for example, the maximum possible ship model for the lift not only with his mass on a Blackboard is specified: no, it's also right in front of anchor and you get a brilliant impression - this is all very thought-out. A very friendly Lady at the checkout, easy parking and a friendly hospitality in the entrance area to do the rest: here are definitely worth visiting. However not very well suited for guests with a disability because there are very narrow stairs in the towers of the lift.

    Been there 40 years ago as a young boy. There is so much industry "culture" on the doorstep and not duly acknowledging her. A must for all who are in our region in the search for exceptional places.
