The newly redesigned South Street Seaport Museum in Lower Manhattan is filled with rich New York City history. Explore the 400-year-long connection between the city and the sea with 16 galleries that are full of cool historic artifacts, model ships, photography, video and more.
Recently reopened under the management of the Museum of the City of New York after undergoing a complete upgrade, the edgy new exhibits range in time from a look back at Manhattan Island in the 1600s all the way up to an Occupy Wall Street photo gallery. Other fascinating installations include a display of historic tools used in the coffee trade and tattoo industries, a number of films about the city’s past, a gallery devoted to today’s New York furniture and fashion designers, and much more.
Tickets for the South Street Seaport Museum are $10 but, when you become a member of Goldstar, you can purchase tickets for $5*. *Additional fees apply.
