It will be exciting to see the community visiting the discovery center in Lockport!

The Erie Canal Discovery Center Encourages Visitors to Interact with Lockport's Past.

The discovery center in Lockport is a fantastic way to stay in touch with local history. The multi-story museum is open through December and tells the story of the five-locks and the influential role in the formation of this town in Niagara county. The interactive exhibits allow visitors to work through the locks themselves while in-character actors tell the story of working on the canal's construction. Opening times run from November 1st through to April 30th. Early tours begin at 10 am, while afternoon tours commence at 2 pm. The Discovery Center is owned and maintained by the Niagara County Historical Society who focuses on bringing history to life for young children and adults. 

  • The three stories of the museum are all wheelchair accessible. 
  • Guided tours and interactive exhibits encourage visitors to live the history of Lockport.
  • The Lock, Stock & Barrel gift shop is a great way to support the center and pick up a souvenir of your visit. 

Business premises could face temporary closure due to water intrusion this winter. Contact SERVPRO of Eastern Niagara County at (716) 694-7776 for commercial water restoration services.
