Though the South Street Seaport Museum’s indoor spaces remain closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, tall ship Wavertree, lightship Ambrose, tugboat W.O. Decker, and the outdoor steps of Bowne & Co. are now welcoming visitors as part of our 2021 Season of Seaport Museum Open Days.
As of August 24, 2021, please note that in accordance with NYC Emergency Executive Order 225, proof of at least one COVID-19 vaccination dose will be required to board W.O. Decker, Ambrose, and the lower decks and enclosed spaces of Wavertree for all guests age 12 and older, and children under the age of 12 must be accompanied by a vaccinated adult. Proof of vaccination can be provided in the form of a physical immunization card, NY Excelsior Pass app, or the NYC COVID Safe app when you check in at the red welcome tent on Pier 16.
Additionally, in accordance with current Federal and New York State COVID-19 guidance, masks are required at all times onboard W.O. Decker, Ambrose, and Wavertree. Because of the nature of face-to-face proximity of watching the printing demonstrations, masks are also required at Bowne & Co. Face coverings are required for employees, and increased cleaning protocols are also in place.
If you have a cough, fever, or other possible COVID symptoms or have been exposed to a person who has COVID, please stay home until you are well and visit us another time.
Be sure to stay engaged with the South Street Seaport Museum during this time.
