  • Fun place to go to learn about how the river supplies energy and also how the lock and dam system works. 
  • We happened to pass by this waterfall and dropped in to find a great narrated explanation of the old lock system and why it was so important just 50 years ago! 
  • Came here as part of our city tour and cruise on the Mississippi. We actually experienced the dam opening and closing as out boat was lifted up

  • What can I say? It's the best Dam Lock I've ever been through..... We were on the lunch cruise from Treasure Island Hotel and Casino, Spirit Of The Water.
