Group Tours

At Independence Seaport Museum, water is the unifying thread, bridging the Museum's National Historic Landmark ships with exhibits and programs that let visitors discover the science, history and culture of our waterways. 

Our group tour options present a unique way to explore the Museum. Whether your interest lies in the history of Philadelphia, maritime exploration, or our Historic Ships, the Independence Seaport Museum is a place for all ages.

Reservations are required to receive the group rate. The Museum asks for at least 48 hours notice for a self-guided group visit.
