Erie Canal Museum, Syracuse Reviews

  • Cozy well maintained museum. Kid friendly. We enjoyed it as well as our 3 year old.

  • This museum is a jewel. Everything is so well presented! I had no idea this canal included so many locks. It was fun to watch the evolution from the first steam engine (1831) competing with the canal and eventually beating it. I discovered so much about the 1830 to 1880s.. The beds on the barge were a surprise, so is the toilet in the kitchen. It was fun to be in the weighlock on the barge picturing life150 years ago. The map near the lobby includes a fascinating side view of the canal from Lake Erie to the Hudson River, listing the cities and the various water levels at the dozens and dozens of locks along the canal. It is a pleasure to read. I imagine my friends, who love boating, enjoying an outing on such a canal.

  • It's a cool place to go to learn about the history of the Erie Canal. They even have a little boat you can go on to see how it was back in the day. And best of all it's FREE!!!

  • This is a great museum. Great displays, some interactive. A canal boat to be boarded. A fun way to learn about the canal that helped make New York the empire state.

  • Went here while passing through on business. I was pleasantly surprised at how thorough and informative it was. Two full floors, life size model canal boat, interactive exhibitions, elevator, gift shop, and artifacts all blended well to explain the significance of the Erie Canal in 19th Century America. Admission was a reasonable $5.00. We parked on the street across from the museum, 2hour limit, metered for a total of $2.50. Takes coin,cash,or credit. There is a diner, and a beer garden to eat or refresh before or after the visit! Right off the highway, located downtown.
