Seaport Walking Tours


Architecture of Trade: Schermerhorn Row and the Seaport | Building Tour

Every second Friday and Saturday of the month | Now through June

Come discover the treasures hidden inside Schermerhorn Row, one of the oldest warehouses of New York City, and home of the Seaport Museum. You will walk up three floors, usually closed to the public, view selected artifacts from the Museum’s permanent collection, and walk through the hidden hotels and saloon rooms made famous by New Yorker writer Joseph Mitchell’s story “Up in the Old Hotel.”

Due to the fragile nature of the preserved rooms and the need to climb several flights of stairs (47 steps,) entry to the fourth floor will be limited. Access will be through an exclusive guided tour only. Tours will be available twice a month. Tour tickets are $15 and $10 for SSSM members, and must be purchased in addition to general admission. Please note that this portion of the exhibition is not accessible by wheelchair.
