The D&H Canal Museum is housed in a former Episcopal Church (completed in 1885) in the historic hamlet of High Falls, NY. The museum's exhibits portray the canal's history, and include a working model of a lock, a life-sized recreated canal boat cabin, a moving model of a gravity railroad brake car, financial documents, and dioramas of the gravity railroad and canal life.  Many tools and artifacts are on display, along with original paintings by canal-era artists.

The D&H Canal Museum Store and Bookshop has a nostalgic 19th century flavor, and offers canal-related maps, cards, posters, and children’s toys and games for sale. Fiction and nonfiction books about the canal and its era are available for both child and adult readers.

Voted best small museum in the Hudson Valley
