Places We Love

Independence Seaport Museum

Independence Seaport Museum maintains one of the largest maritime collections in North America, combining more than 25,000 artifacts with hands-on exhibits and large-scale ship models. The Museum is currently constructing a full-size waterline model of an American topsail schooner of the late 18th century period. During construction, visitors can experience the atmosphere at one of Philadelphia’s first shipyards while getting hands-on and trying out traditional boatbuilding techniques. Additionally, the Museum features a traditional wooden boat shop, the J. Welles Henderson Archives and Library and a 530-seat concert hall, home to the Penn’s Landing Playhouse.  The Museum also includes two National Historic Landmark ships—the Spanish-American War cruiser, Olympia, and the World War II submarine Becuna.

Admission is $15.00 for Adults, $10 for children 3-12 and Seniors, Museum members and children 2 and under are free.
