The world’s leading interpreter of Erie Canal history, the Erie Canal Museum is housed in the National Register 1850 Syracuse Weighlock Building (where canal boats were weighed to assess a toll) and is the only structure of its kind in the world.


Dedicated to collecting and preserving the canal history, the museum features a full-size canal boat, hands-on-interactive exhibits, vignettes about life along the canal and a special exhibits gallery.


The Canal Museum says it best - "Come aboard a full-size replica canal boat, explore life in a canal town. Put on a puppet show. Experience a part of history that played an imperitive role in the growth and development of the United States. The Erie Canal Museum is a must-see for adults and children of all ages."
