I started this blog with one daughter, kept it up with the other, to spend time together doing something we enjoyed.
However, things change and people evolve. My daughters are older, busier, and not as interested in writing.
From now on this blog will be mostly mom with occasional contributions from my daughters and maybe even my husband.
Nothing else will change. We'll still focus on sharing fun places to go, fun things to do, and more, and we would  still love to hear your views too

Where-To-Go- Wednesday - South Street Seaport Museum Galleries

We were given free tickets to the South Street Seaport Museum Galleries for review purposes. Any and all opinions expressed  are our own.

What: South Street Seaport Museum Galleries

Where: 12 Fulton Street
             New York, NY

Who: All ages


Me & Mom - The South Street Seaport Museum Galleries are small but interesting. Currently, there is an exhibit called Migrants and Millionaires aboard the Great Liners 1900-1914. The exhibit includes a diagram of a ship from the Cunard line as well as pictures of other ships. There are ship models including one of  the lightship Ambrose. The actual lightship Ambrose is at the South Street Seaport too, and you can go on a tour of it. There is a picture of boarding pass from the White Star Line and a 3rd class meal menu from the White Star Line. The Titanic was part of the White Star Line. There were pictures of immigrants at Ellis Island. There was a  video about trunks and how to pack for a long voyage. There was a lot more too. The exhibit really showed what it was like to go on a long ocean voyage and how different it was for the the rich and poor classes. Downstairs in the museum, there were a few artifacts not necessarily directly related to the main exhibit. There was figurehead from a ship, there was a giant bell, there was a life preserver from the Wavertree which is another ship that you can visit at the South Street Seaport, and there were a few other things. The South Street Seaport Museum Galleries are a great place to learn about the history of sea travel.
