Crew and Cargo

South Street Seaport Museum announces Crew and Cargo, a series of 45-minute activities being offered at 10am for ages 5–9 and 11am for ages 8–12. Families are invited on board the 1885 tall ship Wavertree to participate in hands-on activities that explore the fascinating world of 19th century trans-Atlantic sailors. These dynamic activities invite kids ages 5–12 to haul on ropes to raise the sail, and walk the capstan ’round, while learning how sailors slept, ate, worked, and played. Registration is required for each participating child. 

This program will take place in temperature-controlled areas of Wavertree, as well as outdoors on the deck. In the event of inclement weather, the program will take place indoors only. Grab a coat and enjoy this fresh air experience at the Seaport Museum.
