Founded on May 22, 1967, and newly revitalized under the management of the Museum of the City of New York, the South Street Seaport Museum is looking toward the future. Three floors of galleries in Schermerhorn Row opened on January 25, 2012, with 16 historic and contemporary installations interweaving the city, the sea, and the Seaport neighborhood. Also welcoming the public once again are the lightship Ambrose, with a brand-new hull, and schooner Pioneer, with new sails and a new transmission—as well as the 19th-century letterpress print shop Bowne & Co., Stationers. Thousands of children and teachers have already participated in re-launched education programs, and a lively slate of lectures, symposia, and tours is underway.

Saturdays & Sundays
Celebrate your child’s birthday in a fun-filled and unique way with a harbor sail aboard the Museum’s 1885 schooner Pioneer! Sailabrations are for children ages 8 to 16 and include loot bags, a gift for the birthday child, a birthday cake and “edutainment” activities such as tug-o-war, sail raising and interaction with harbor animals. Maximum is 35 passengers (30 children and five adults). Price of the two-hour sail is from $1,200. For reservations, call the museum.
