Canal Exploration Center

7104 Canal Road
Valley View, OH, 44125

Brighten your visit to Cuyahoga Valley National Park with a stop at the Canal Exploration Center, which opened in 2014 along the America's Byway. Welcoming rangers and volunteers will help you dive into our canal-era past and explore life on the historic Ohio & Erie Canal. Exhibits illustrate canal life in the valley. The canal-era building once served canal boat passengers waiting to pass through Canal Lock 38. Lock demonstrations are conducted seasonally on weekends. A bookstore provides in-depth books and materials about the park.

The Center is open daily - 10 a.m. - 4 p.m.
