“Chittenango Landing Canal Boat Museum interprets the broad and deep history of Chittenango Landing: the land, air, water and people by engaging the public through educational and recreational programming. While preserving and interpreting the recreated 19th century dry dock complex, the museum fosters connections between the past and present in the Old Erie Canal State Historic Park.”

The museum is not-for-profit 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1954, and a Charitable Organization recognized by the State of New York, Department of Law, Charities Bureau.
