Southern BurgundyEcuisses Musée du canal

Museum & Boat Ride

This museum is located at the former lock #9 on the Canal du Centre. Museum includes 1790 lock house built along with the Canal du Centre, the Armançon barge (photo above) in service from 1950 to 1990 and lock #9.

Two hour boat rides starting at the museum along the Canal du Centre are available on Sundays and holidays from April to June and September/October. There are daily boat rides during July and August. You can buy separate tickets for the museum and boat ride or together.

Museum is on the Route du Canal - D974 road that parallels the Canal du Centre. There are seven functioning locks along this road that runs between Ecuisses and Saint-Léger-sur-Dheune. Some of these locks have a maison éclusière - lock house. The Voie Verte bike path also parallels the Canal du Centre.

There is a former tile factory - tuilerie across the street from the museum. Notice the 'Boulangerie' house next to the museum. Many of the buildings in Ecuisses have decorative wall tiles. Ecuisses has an over 100 year history of tile making.

Affiliated with other local Ecomusées like Château de la Verrerie in Le Creusot.
