This place gives you an overall view or the region and the canal. It will take 20 to 30 minutes to go through it. For boaters there is a laundry machine in the lower level to use

This was a fun place to meet up with extended family - we aged 75-8 and everyone enjoyed the museum. Interesting & interactive exhibits.

A stop at this museum was well worth the investment of time for us. It explains why you won't find any waterfalls in Seneca Falls. Very detailed exhibits explore the industry and history of the Erie Canal. Volunteers and staff were very friendly.

This free, three story, Museum is located pretty much in the middle of downtown Seneca Falls. On the backside (south entrance), you are literally "at" the Cayuga-Seneca Canal. The Museum is appropriately named with displays that pertain to both the Waterways and the Industries that...More
