South Street Seaport Museum


About the South Street Seaport Museum

The South Street Seaport Museum, located in the heart of the South Street Seaport Historic District in New York City, preserves and interprets the history of New York as a great port city. Founded in 1967, the Museum houses an extensive collection of works of art and artifacts, exhibition galleries and education spaces, working nineteenth century print shops, and an active fleet of historic vessels that all work to tell the story of “Where New York Begins.”

Exhibitions at the South Street Seaport Museum are located at 12 Fulton Street. Currently on view are an introductory gallery “South Street and the Rise of New York,” as well as a newly reconfigured return of the popular “Millions: Migrants and Millionaires aboard the Great Liners, 1900-1914.” In addition, 1885 tall ship Wavertree, 1908 lightship Ambrose, and an outdoor exhibition on Pier 16 are also open to visitors. Guided tours of Wavertree are available every 20 minutes, and guided tours of Ambrose will depart once every hour.

Artexpo ticket holders get complimentary access to both the exhibitions and tours of historic ships, from 11am to 5pm on Friday, 4/8, Saturday, 4/9, and Sunday, 4/10.  Stop by 12 Fulton Street and show your ticket or badge.
