Dive into New York City's rich maritime history by paying a visit to the South Street Seaport Museum!

View the cabins and decks of six historic ships dating back to the 19th Century in New York. Inside you will get to see many interesting artifacts and exhibitions that beautifully depict the origins of the city and early discoveries that were made at sea. 

The museum includes a complex of 19th century buildings occupying 2 blocks along the East River. Within the buildings, galleries are on display, showing not only the history of life at sea in New York but also peaking the imagination of visitors and showing what life would be like if they were living on an old sailing cargo ship like those used in the 19th Century.
