People got the chance to check out the exhibits inside of the museum, as well as an opportunity to get some hands experience with staff members.
However, what stole the show today was Erie's very own beautiful Brig Niagara on full display, docked and welcoming families to get on board and check out the ship.
People we spoke with said the ship surely does not disappoint and neither does the museum.
This event was funded by the Pennsylvania Historic Museum Commission, and hot dogs were donated by Smith’s.
