You have to reserve a starting time on-line (to prevent the museum from getting too crowded). We made a reservation for 10:15, not knowing if we were going to spend an hour or three hours there. Definitely three hours, maybe a bit more. I've lived in Rochester for over 45 years, and I've never gotten such a good understanding of the Erie Canal system and its impact on the development of upstate New York. The arrows on the floor lead you through the exhibits, which are mostly arranged chronologically and cover construction, the lives of people working on the canals, and the resulting growth of the cities and their key industries. I've ridden my bicycle along the Barge Canal around Rochester and visited the locks in Lockport (to raise the canal to the level of the Niagara escarpment), but it all makes much more sense to me now. And as a result of this exhibit, I'm now aware of a number of other historic sights that I want to see! Very interesting and well curated.

A very well versed staff unwinds the story of the Erie Canal in Syracuse and how it helped the area grow in commerce, making it a contender for the main immigration port in the 1700s.

Did a term paper in grade school on the Erie Canal. Always wanted to visit and learn more. Fast forward 40 years and we found this very nice museum. Great information and learned some new things. Great way to spend a few hours.

Every year we come to view the display of gingerbread submitted by community groups, families and professionals. The creativity is remarkable and evokes memories along with making them. It is not too large and perfect for younger children to view easily.
