We stumbled on this place by accident and are so glad we did. The video and self guided tour through the original site (some original items and some recreations) were wonderful to experience.

we discovered this wonderful place during our bike ride on the Erie Canal tow path trail. So amazing to see this little piece of American, and canal, history. So glad we rode far enough to make this discovery. A must visit for history buffs.

One of several canal related museums, but this one focuses on the boats used on the Erie Canal so long ago.

A unique view of the Erie canal and the people around it. You can see a section of the original "ditch", some dry locks and the inside of a canal boat.
