Eisenhower Visitors' Center, located at the U.S. Eisenhower Lock in Massena, NY, will remain closed to the public until further notice.  In the past, the facility has typically opened on Memorial Day weekend.

A north overlook parking lot near the Eisenhower Lock is always available for visitors to view ships.  The address of the north overlook is 190 B Barnhart Island Rd., Massena, NY 13662.
