If you visit the riverfront in Newburgh, it's common to see barges and tow boats. And now you can experience what really happens on these boats.

Newburgh is offering a free crew-guided tour. It's August 30, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. 

Sponsors like AEP and Evansville Marine are making the project possible.

In the coming weeks, docks and ramps will be built to allow visitors to step onto the barge named "Legacy".
