Traveling to the Seaport


Parking is available in the Hilton Penn's Landing Parking Garage, located next to Independence Seaport Museum on Columbus Blvd.  When parking in this garage, you will receive a 'chaser' ticket from the front desk staff at the Museum to discount parking to the rate of $16 when you purchase combo admission to the Museum and ships.  Please note the discount is good for up to five hours.  This lost is operated by USA Parking System.  Special holidays and events are excluded from the discounted parking.

Parking is also available at the Penn's Landing Walnut Street Parking Lot adjacent to the Museum.  This lost is owned and operated by the Delaware River Waterfront Corporation and prices may vary by season. 

ADA accessible designated parking spaces are available in the Hilton Parking Garage next door or in the Penn's Landing lot in front of Independence Seaport Museum.  Both parking areas can be entered at Walnut Street and Columbus Blvd.



Independence Seaport Museum is located on Philadelphia's Penn's Landing waterfront. We are a short walk over the South Street, Walnut Street, and Chestnut Street pedestrian bridges, and close to many shops and restaurants in the Old City historic district.
