National Canal Museum
Kids on the Canal – Those That Came Before Us
The canal is more than just boats, mules and mechanics. It is also people. Come learn some stories of the people who built, ran and lived by the canal when it was in its hey day from the mid 1800s to the turn of the 20th century. We will have stations set up inside the museum, each one with a unique story to tell. Each station will have some kind of hands on activity. Perhaps, you will make a homemade toy, try harnessing a mule, or move a tiller. Perhaps you will listen to a story from the Original people whose land the canal was built on. We can still see the canal, come on out and listen to stories about the people who lived with it.
