The Erie Canal Museum is dedicated to the Erie Canal; a major transportation hub during the Civil War. Post war the canal usage depleted as the road and rail network expanded. This was followed by severe destruction of the Greek Revival style Weighlock Building, which housed the canal boat weighlocks. After major protests by the locals, this historic building was restored and a museum showcasing the history of the canal was founded here. Today several tourists come here to explore the United States history and the canal's instrumental role in it. The museum hosts various exhibitions and events associated with the same subject. Check website for details on upcoming events.
