The Erie Canal celebrates its 200th Anniversary beginning this year across New York State. The museum presents "Always Know Your Pal", an exhibit that shares with visitors the history and heritage of canal culture using the lyrics of the popular "Erie Canal Song" as a guide.

You're invited to come learn more about canal life and the impact it has had on daily life for those who have lived along the canal. With each memorable lyric, you can tour through the history of the Erie Canal in a fun and educational way that'll be sure to keep you repeating the refrain Low Bridge, Everybody Down! We encourage you to bring your own stories you'd like to share, which you can post to our "Canal Conversation" board!

 

You can also see a working scale model of a lock, and then, go outside, and see a real one!
