National Historic Site - original locks from the D&H Canal. Open end of May thru Labor Day on Thursdays thru Mondays from 11 to 5, Sundays from 1 to 5. May, September & October open weekends only on Saturdays from 11 to 5 and Sundays from 1 to 5.

This "hands on", pictorial museum captures the colorful, romantic story of life along the canal. Visitors of all ages learn about 19th century technology through working models of a lock and gravity railroad car. Dioramas depict such engineering marvels associated with the canal as John A. Roebling's's suspension aqueducts and the D&H Canal Company's brief experiment with the first steam locomotive to run in the country.

Maps, photos and artifacts document the canal related industries that created "boom towns" along its route. Rosendale Natural Cement, with its unusual strength and hydraulic properties, supplied fifty percent of the nation's's cement and employed over 4,000 workers in Rosendale alone.

Hours of Operation
May through October.
Group tours all year, call for reservations.
