Independence Seaport Museum

The Independence Seaport Museum conveys the importance of the Delaware and Schuylkill Rivers to Philadelphia over the years. Along with displays that chronicle the city’s contributions to naval and commercial maritime history, the museum offers visitors a rare close-up look at two historic naval ships, the cruiser Olympia and the submarine Becuna.
