An official Path Through History Site! The Erie Canal Museum is housed in the 1850 Syracuse Weighlock Building, the only structure of its kind in the world. The Museum includes a full-size canal boat, hand-on-interactive exhibits, vignettes about life along the canal, a special exhibits gallery, and the outdoor Locktender's Garden. The museum is the site of the former Syracuse Heritage Area Visitor Center that provides information, brochures, and maps to visitors and includes interpretive signage throughout downtown Syracuse.
