Our partners include canal-related museums and cultural heritage sites located throughout the National Heritage Corridor.
Some showcase important works of engineering, others have works of art or artifacts, and some highlight the value of the canal today. Together, our partners share the powerful story of the canal's role in shaping New York and the nation.
Be sure to visit these sites to see their unique contribution to our canal heritage.
(Partners are named to one of three categories based on their facilities, hours of operation, and significance as a canal site, see below for description.)
