Independence Seaport Museum
Philadelphia has been an important seaport town since the 1600s. The Seaport Museum traces this history through exhibits, demonstrations, and several ships on display, including a World War II submarine and the USS Olympia, Admiral Dewey's flagship in the Spanish-American War. The auditorium at the museum is also used for chamber music concerts.
So much to see and do, great views and the staff are so nice. We will be back again, and take more firends. Families and children so much to see and learn.
A+++++++++++++++++++++ for the Seaport Museum. Admission is also free Sundays 11am to 1PM.
Check it out.
I brought my entire summer camp to the Independece Seaport Museum and we had a wonderful time. The exhibits were interesting for children, the lesson was fun and interactive as wll as educational and the staff was attentive and welcoming. We will definatlry be back next year!
Our girl scout troop "surprised" the front desk clerk when we showed up for an advertised group event, to which we had confirmed reservations. They had to call the events coordinator at home to get her in to the building. Many exibits were not working, there were broken items in the store that were dangerous, they didn't know the cost of the event. The tour however was run well and the girls had fun. The organization and response needs improvement - I don't want to hear excusses about turnover!
My nine-year old son went to the Independence Seaport Museum with his fourth grade class. When he left in the morning, we gave his teacher a $20 bill to hold for him to use because he wanted to buy a special gift for his grandfather's birthday in their gift shop. He had fun with the demonstrations and generally liked the museum, but when he went to the cashier with the $20 bill, she humiliated him in front of the entire class by telling him that no child should have a $20 and asking every other child there how much money they had by way of comparison. Apparently this transgressed her values system. My son is very shy and it's hard for him to conduct a transaction alone, and she's caused him to be even more shy now. Great job, Independence Seaport Museum. Way to go.
