About South Street Seaport Museum
The South Street Seaport Museum preserves and interprets the history of New York City as a world port, a place where goods, labor and cultures are exchanged through work, commerce, and the interaction of diverse communities.
From transatlantic shipping to immigration to New York’s rise to economic pre-eminence, the waterfront world has played a critical role in developments that have transformed the entire city. Designated by Congress as America’s National Maritime Museum in 1998, the South Street Seaport Museum is located in a 12 square-block historic district on the East River in Lower Manhattan, the site of the original port of New York City.
