Ahoy! Celebrate your child’s birthday at the Seaport Museum!

Come celebrate your child’s birthday at the South Street Seaport Museum with an interactive experience they won’t forget! Our birthdays are specially designed to be age appropriate for the birthday child, but guests of all ages will enjoy the fun!

For children 1-7, we can host our parties in our miniMates play-space.
Children 6 and up can board the South Street Seaport Museum’s largest artifact, the tall ship Wavertree and have a party on her main deck!
For children 9 and up, charter our historic schooner Pioneer for a celebratory sail of New York’s Harbor!

Birthday parties in the miniMates play-space and on Wavertree run from either 11:30-1:30 or 2:30-4:30 on Saturdays and Sundays.
