South Street Seaport Museum

Embark on a maritime journey through history as you explore the captivating exhibits and iconic ships at the South Street Seaport Museum. Dive deep into New York's seafaring past and discover the stories of sailors, merchants, and adventurers who shaped the city's waterfront.

The South Street Seaport Museum is New York's interactive historical experience and consists of four ships at Pier 16, a working 19th-Century letterpress shop, a fine-gifts store and multiple exhibitions in landmarked buildings that tell the story of New York City's history through its role as a major world port, trade hub and place for businesses and cultures to come together. Find picturesque cobblestone-lined streets and buildings from the early 1800s, exceptional views of the Brooklyn Bridge and Brooklyn Heights from our pier and interactive printing demonstrations on printing presses that are part of the Museum's collection. Come aboard the last remaining three-masted, iron-hulled tall ship Wavertree and take a tour down into her hold where you'll get to see her impressive iron belly, from stem to stern.

Optional: New York Harbor tours on the historic 1885 schooner Pioneer and the last-remaining New York-built wooden tugboat W.O.Decker—the only tugboat the public can ride! (seasonal and additional fees apply)
