$1 Admission For All Time!

$1 admission for all time!

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

Admission to the Museum is now only $1 per person for all time. We believe everyone is a mariner and we invite you to discover your maritime connection with us. The Mariners’ Museum and Park is your museum. We tell your story. Admission is one dollar because we are connected as one through the water.
