The unique weighlock building is to this day the Museum’s most important artifact and a centerpiece for the interpretation of Erie Canal history. The Museum is dedicated to telling the great American adventure story of the Erie Canal, a story that was a key factor in America’s phenomenal growth. The Erie Canal Museum collects and conserves Canal material, champions an appreciation and understanding of Erie Canal history through educational programming, and promotes an awareness of the Canal’s transforming effects on the past, present and future. The Museum includes a full size canal boat, hands-on interactive exhibits, vignettes about life along the canal, a special exhibits gallery, a 12-minute informative movie, and the outdoor Locktender’s Garden. The Museum also has a gift shop with Erie Canal books, photos, and gifts. As the first canal museum in New York State, the Erie Canal Museum serves as an entry point and node to the other interpretive centers along the Erie Canalway National Heritage Corridor. The Erie Canal Museum is also the site of the Syracuse Heritage Area Visitor Center that provides information, brochures, and maps to visitors and includes interpretive signage throughout downtown Syracuse. « less
