South Street Seaport Museum tells the story of how New York’s great natural harbor gave rise to the metropolis we know today. From historic ships to district walking tours, block printing, and woodcarving, our Education Programs provide a deeper experience of the history and environment of our great port city, and an understanding of how our port connects us to the world.

Our Education Programs inspire kids of all ages with hands-on activities, living history, and the call of the sea. Programs are adaptable for families, after-school session, camp outings, team building, adult special interest clubs, and professional development for teachers. Advance reservations are required. Limited scholarships available.
