New York’s Interactive Historic Experience!

The South Street Seaport Museum is a New York City cultural institution dedicated to telling the story of how the city grew from a small Dutch colony to a world port metropolis where cultures and businesses came together and thrived.

Join us on a journey that includes a working 19th Century letterpress shop, a turn-of-the-century fine goods emporium, multiple exhibitions on Schermerhorn Row, and visit Pier 16 to tour the “floating lighthouse” Ambrose and the only iron-hulled, tall ship in New York City, Wavertree.
