National Canal Museum & Hugh Moore Historical Park

After 15 years at Two Rivers Landing in Centre Square the National Canal Museum has relocated to its Emrick Center building in Hugh Moore Park, home to its industrial roots, a Locktender’s House, and the famous mule-drawn Canal Boat ride in refurbished operating locks.

This ‘new and improved’ family-friendly – and fun – Canal Center features simple machines used in development of civil engineering hands-on Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) exhibits; additional canal-focused exhibits; plus other artifacts describing this seminal transportation system and its related industries of the 1800′s. It also orients visitors to the Park’s historic role and keystone environment location in the National Park Service’s Heritage Corridor. The story is more sharply focused, digs deeper, and now is told next to the canal and in the context of the Park, one of the first industrial sites in America and a crucible of the Industrial Revolution.
