New Outdoor Exhibition on Pier 16
Head over to Pier 16 to see our new outdoor exhibition. The window installations and free-standing panels that run along the Pier between our flagship Wavertree and lightship Ambrose explore the history of the Port of New York and the lives of the people who lived and worked here. If you stop by on September 5, 6, 12, 19, or 26 you can also visit the outdoor decks of Wavertree as we've recently opened for a limited time for self-guided tours. All free.

Pier 16 is open to the public at all times, but you'll need to reserve a free timed ticket to visit Wavertree.
Schooner Pioneer Celebrates 50 Years at the Seaport Museum
Fifty years ago this month we welcomed the 1885 schooner Pioneer to our fleet. She was the third vessel to join our feet of historic ships, arriving just a few weeks after our flagship Wavertree.

Since her first day at the Museum, Pioneer’s mission has been “to introduce city kids to the wide horizon of the sea, and to carry the Seaport Museum story to each port at which she called.”
-South Street Reporter, Fall 1971.

After 50 years of service to the Museum, Pioneer is in currently in shipyard, undergoing maintenance and restoration. Stay tuned on our social channels for updates on work progress and to learn when she'll be back for education and sailing programs.
