We have four kids, ages 11-16, and they were entertained by this. Not the highlight of their trip, but it is a good stop to understand all that is around you in this city with the locks and the ships. Interesting to see the crew's quarters on the boat and be able to walk around inside a real ship. Really helps you appreciate what a difficult job it would be. If you are really into the history of shipping on the lakes, you'll spend quite a bit of time here. Others will find themselves skipping over some of the things, but the exhibits are varied and well-presented.
It is borderline too expensive for what it offers, but since there weren't alot of other choices in the city, I'm glad we did it so the kids could understand the area and the importance.
