Erie Canal Museum in Syracuse, NY, Part One

Erie Canal Museum in Syracuse, NY, Part One

This museum in Syracuse is dedicated to everything Erie Canal. The museum is right on the historic banks of the Canal, and it’s housed in the old weighlock building– one of the Canal’s tolling places. So the museum has a history of its own, as well as offering a complete history of New York’s famous and nation-building Erie Canal.
