Erie Canal Museum
The Erie Canal Museum in downtown Syracuse, is the nation’s premier maritime museum specializing in Erie Canal history. The museum is housed in the National Register 1850 Syracuse Weighlock Building – where canal boats were weighed to assess a toll – and is the only remaining structure of its kind in America. Within its walls, visitors learn how and why the Erie Canal was built, how a weigh station operated, and discover how the Erie Canal affected industrial development, trade, and frontier settlement.
