Seaport Museum Open Days also include free entry to 1885 tall ship Wavertree, now through October 2021 on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays with timed tickets, from 11am-5pm at Pier 16 (Fulton and South Streets). Entry is FREE and includes access to the ship's main deck and raised rear deck, as well as the cargo hold. To learn more and reserve tickets, visit seaportmuseum.org/visitwavertree.

Wavertree is designated on the National Register of Historic Places and represents the thousands of ships that docked along New York's waterfront over the centuries. Guests will visit the traditional sailing ship docked at Pier 16. Gaze up at the towering masts and miles of rigging. Learn how people worked and lived aboard a 19th century cargo sailing vessel, from the captain to the ship's officers, cooks, and crew. Then visit the cargo hold and stand atop our new viewing platform where you can take in the massive main cargo area. Climb up onto the quarterdeck and pose for a photo at the ship's wheel, and enjoy the view as you look out across New York Harbor and see the Brooklyn Bridge and Brooklyn Heights. Or look landward and see the skyline of the Financial District, which flourished because of ships like Wavertreewhich brought in the goods that helped businesses thrive.
