Hands-on accessible exhibits in the Tavern help to bring the story of the canal alive. Listen to a locktender's daughter tell her story of growing up on the canal. Run your hands across the replica boat and peek inside to see the mules, hay and coal. Even smell the cider that would have been served in the Tavern in the 1800s. Also, make sure to pick up a hiking map before heading out.
