Erie Canal Museum and Syracuse Heritage Area Visitor Center

Erie Canal Museum and Syracuse Heritage Area Visitor Center Review

Orient yourself to Syracuse and the region by watching the introductory film in the museum theater. Then make your way to a replica canal boat in a circa-1850 building where real canal boats were weighed when the Erie was a major player in U.S. commerce. A re-created general store, an 1800s canal office, and a postal area are interspersed with exhibits about Syracuse musician Libba Cotten and others who shaped the region.
