South Street Seaport Museum seeks experienced, enthusiastic educators to teach educational programs on board our sailing vessels, in our galleries, on walking tours, and in classrooms around the city. We celebrate the ships, the people who sailed them, the cargoes they carried, and the businesses that supported them. We also celebrate New York Harbor as a vital natural resource. Our educators bring to our students a sense of the Seaport’s history and the Harbor’s continued importance as an ecosystem and as an economic waterway.
Educational programs for visiting schools last from 90 minutes to 3 hours, and include topics such as New Amsterdam history, Life on Board a Tall Ship, and Estuary Ecology.
