About the Independence Seaport Museum

We’re all about water! Dive into River Alive!, a new exhibit that brings the wildlife, science, and wonder of the Delaware River up close. Raise the sails on our pirate ship Diligence, climb aboard National Historic Landmark ships Cruiser Olympia and Submarine Becuna, and submerge yourself in hands-on exhibits, our Workshop on the Water, plus one of the largest maritime art and artifact collections in North America. With so much to explore, Independence Seaport Museum is the premier, family-friendly destination on the Penn’s Landing waterfront.
