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.
