  • Has some interesting exhibits. But packed too much with information and really didn't have fun or enjoy going there. But it has value for people who like a lot of information. 
  • 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 sho...  more »
  • The Museum staff is very helpful. They also provide information for tourists for the essential places to visit in Syracuse

  • I grew up on the land near the Poolsbrook wide waters my dad Ted E. Neis bought it after WW2 nice displays but not anything about that part of the canal, enjoyed my visit. Ted A. Neis
  • I live in Syracuse, NY and visit the Canal Museum frequently. They have recently revamped their exhibit areas and there are several interactive exhibits that will help you understand the hydrology of the canal and its significance to the development of the Empire State and, indeed, the rest of the USA in the early 1800's. The first "Interstate Highway" in the USA to my way of thinking. Enjoy!
  • Very nice experience. Spent an hour there while driving through New York. Would recommend to anyone. I was especially touched by the text of a letter from a man in Ohio to his brother in Germany giving instructions to cross the ocean, get through New York City, up the Hudson, across the canal, over the lake and then on a stage coach. We have it so easy. Even with planes packed tight as they are.
  • Very disappointed, I thought this was going to be a museum full of ear canals, and that the name was a pun. But, upon arrival I quickly learned that that was not the case, major let down.
  • This place is awesome for any history buff. You'll learn a lot.
