  • Amazing structure created in an environmentally friendly way. Very educational as well- the museum included photos of the original steel turbine constructed in our very own York, Pennsylvania. We never saw fish ladders before and were interested in the underwater windows which enabled great fish watching.
  • Awesome place to see a dam built in the past and an awesome place to see fishes go through fish ladder. They give free dam tours regularly.
  • Make sure you stop by the salmon ladder.
