  • Seaport museum itself is interesting if you are interested in the history of boating on the Delaware river. There are a number of displays, as well as real ship builders who create historical ships from wood. They are great to talk to. This is a good starting point if you want to check out the submarine and the Spanish American war flagship of admiral dewy docked next door. I also recommend checking out patriot harbor cruises for an actual boat ride of the Delaware. Capt. Walt is the best and you won't regret it!
  • The Space is awesome. It's spacious and comfortable for parties. There's plenty of nautical things to view. The ferry also leaves from here. At times, I've used this area to meet & gather w/ friends before attending the free jazz shows. This particular evening I took I this pictures of my Aunts.
  • The navel submarine and ship is great to visit. the seaport museum is okey type.
  • Boardwalk was being pulled up, preventing access to the ship and submarine. Museum staff were not of any help, and offered no level of refund for not having access to what was the main reason we visited. Otherwise an excellent place.
  • It's quite and lovely place to see lots of equipment of fishing.Great experience of sea boats.
