Independence Seaport Museum
http://phillyseaport.org/
The seaport museum is a great place to explore the Delaware Valley's maritime heritage with the entire family! Take part in the interactive exhibits and marvel at the elaborate ship models. Climb aboard Admiral Dewey's 1892 crusier, Olympia, or climb inside the submarine Becuna. Both vessels are National Historic Landmarks. Overall, the museum houses more than 14,000 artifacts and there is a gift shop on site for you to purchase your own nautical treasure. The museum is open from 10:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. daily and closed on major holidays.
