  • 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.
  • Very informative and well presented. An hour well spent.
  • Dig the canal so we have water again! I found the staff to be lovely. I really thought it was going to be one of those dreary museums run by those painless history people. But au contraire. I'm looking forward to the big Wednesday night next week.
  • Great museum that kept the kids attention. Can do in an hour maybe 2 hours if you read everything.
