The National Canal Museum is the Signature Program of the Delaware & Lehigh National Heritage Corridor, specifically in Easton, Pennsylvania.

After a three-year transition during which the Delaware & Lehigh National Heritage Corridor operated the canal museum under a management agreement, the two merged to become one. The D&L is now responsible for The National Canal Museum and for Hugh Moore Park, The Emrick Technology Center, Locktender's House Museum and the canal boat ride, Josiah White II.

Officially known as Hugh Moore Historical Park & Museums, the National Canal Museum is located in Easton's Hugh Moore Park.

  • Wonderful piece of history. Took our summer school kids for a field trip. Lots of hands on activities to keep them busy. They enjoyed learning what it was like for kids their age to grow up on a canal boat. Fun park for the kids to enjoy as well as picnic tables to enjoy lunch.
  • Fantastic place to visit! The museum staff are all very knowledgeable and eager to talk with you! We learned a lot and wished we could have spent more time. It is a great place to visit with kids. Lots of exhibits that will interest them and involve them.
