What is the experience like?
“The best field trip ever”—school children from all over Central New York share this sentiment when they visit Chittenango Landing Canal Boat Museum. Last year, over 1,800 school children learned about the Erie Canal, boat building, [and] life on a canal boat, and they experienced what it is like to be a real archaeologist searching for historic artifacts while enjoying our top-notch education program. An award-winning historic site, the Chittenango Landing Canal Boat Museum preserves the history of the only restored historic dry dock on the canal and shares the story of the Erie Canal’s role in making New York the Empire State.
Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
Walk along the Erie Canal to the stone aqueduct. Bring or rent a bike and explore along the path where Sal the mule walked from Buffalo to Albany pulling the canal boats loaded with New York state agricultural products, and see the sites that thousands of immigrants from Ireland and all of Europe first saw as they traveled on the Erie Canal to settle western New York and the states west [of there].
