Chittenango Canal Boat Museum

Chittenango Canal Boat Museum

The museum gives visitors the opportunity to learn of canal boat-building and of the construction of the Erie Canal.

 

The Chittenango Landing Canal Boat Museum is located within the Old Erie Canal State Historic Park in Central New York State. During the 19th and 20th centuries, 96-foot long cargo boats were built and repaired on this site. The Museum tells of the construction of these boats, the workings of the restored dry docks and the social history of the canal area.
