Discover the Erie Canal Museum
The Erie Canal Museum
318 Erie Boulevard East
Syracuse, NY 13202
The Erie Canal Museum serves the general public from broad geographic areas. It maintains and enhances the scope and appeal of its canal-related educational programs, exhibits and collections. In 1986, Syracuse was selected as one of New York State Parks Department’s 14 Heritage Area communities because the city captures a unique facet of state history. ECM’s one-of-a-kind historic Weighlock Building and our Mission Statement led to ECM being invited to serve as the official Syracuse Heritage Area Visitor Center. As such, the ECM has since been acknowledged and promoted by the City of Syracuse as the place to learn local and state history. ECM also provides reference maps and brochures to Syracuse’s other cultural resources.

The Creamery is one of Skaneateles’ primary cultural centers. Recently, we were able to acquire the property next door, which once housed the boiler for the Cremery. We have a rare opportunity to expand.
The museum expansion will feature the Boat & Transportation Museum. The original Creamery and the new Boat & Transportation museum will be connected by a wing adjacent to Skaneateles Creek. In addition, the existing Creamery will receive a much needed expansion for research and record retention.
The Skaneateles Historical Society is asking that you donate funds for this project. Your tax-deductible donations can be sent to:

The Salt Museum, Syracuse NY
“Why is Syracuse nicknamed the Salt City?”, “What were the two types of salt producing methods used during this era?”
The Salt Museum
Discover the industry that created the City of Syracuse and supplied the entire nation with salt! Explore the site of an original boiling block where brine (salt water) was turned into what was then considered one of the country’s most precious commodities. See the actual kettles, wooden barrels and other equipment that were used in this fascinating process which came to an end in the 1920′s.
The museum, located on the shore of Onondaga Lake, is full of dynamic exhibits and artifacts. Constructed from timbers taken from actual salt warehouses, it provides an old time rustic experience during your visit.
Gift shop, operated by the Friends of Historic Onondaga Lake, visitor information center and picnic areas on location.
