Flight of Five Reconstruction Tour
This one-hour tour will feature the history of the Erie Canal, as well as the design and construction of the original Flight of Five Locks. Due to season-long reconstruction of Erie Canal Lock 68, visitors have the unique opportunity to view the historic Locks 67-71 prior to reconstruction, during reconstruction and upon completion of reconstruction. After the tour, there is an opportunity to try your hand as a Locktender! Be part of a team that opens and closes the replica 5 ton lock gates. Groups of 11 and more people must make reservations in advance for the Reconstruction Tour; a $2 per person donation is requested from large groups.
