$1 Museum Admission all Summer

Only for the summer! Admission is $1 per person!

The Mariners’ Museum and Park connects people to the world’s waters, because through the water, we are connected to one another.

We are united as one global community through our shared maritime heritage. Everyone has a tie to the water, whether through career, culture, family, or leisure. The Mariners’ Museum and Park is here to tell your story. We are your museum.
