Erie Canal Museum, Syracuse Reviews
The Building, & its Contents are "Museum Quality"! The building housing the Museum was built in 1849-- and was used to weigh vessels in order to determine the applicable fee/toll for using the Canal. When the fees were abolished, the building was vacant until 1962 when it was converted, over a period to the present into the Museum [by local residents]. The collection includes a full size (reconstructed 50 foot bat as well as about 50,000 diverse and interesting items related to the Erie (and other) canal(s). Its definitely worthy of a visit. A donation ($5.00 is recommended) can be made upon entry. I hope that this Review was helpful.
the Erie Canal is an interesting place in history that has no boundaries. They used to carry all the shipments from New York City to Binghamton, to Rochester to Syracuse and up to Buffalo and do that trip. It was a tough time and it deserves a museum.
I was looking for something to do when I had some free time in Syracuse, and found the this Museum online. It's free with a suggested $5 donation which I was happy to give. It was larger and more comprehensive than I had expected. I was glad I went there. They even provide free parking.
Great organization. Good way to spend a couple hours in Syracuse on a very hot day. Exceptional displayss, well organized and very interesting. The replica of the canal boat was well done. Learned so much about the history of the canal and the area.
Last I remember I had good experience however it was while ago but I'm sure it's fine now.🎩
