Why is there a canal here? Who worked on canals? Did canal moms really tie their toddlers to the boat? All these questions and more will be answered during 30-minute talks aboard our canal boat, the Josiah White II at 1:00, 2:00 and 3:00pm. While we’re not yet ready to take visitors for canal boat rides, a member of the canal boat crew will use the backdrop of the boat to take you back to a time when families lived and worked aboard canal boats plying the waters of the Lehigh Canal. Included in the price of museum admission.
