Join the South Street Seaport Museum for a special behind-the-scenes tour of 1885 tall ship Wavertree. The 137-year-old Wavertree, built of riveted wrought iron, is an archetype of the sailing ships of the latter half of the 19th century that, during the “age of sail,” lined South Street by the dozens, creating a forest of masts from the Battery to the Brooklyn Bridge. Seaport Museum staff and crew will take you to places around the ship not typically accessible to the general public. Guests will get a glimpse at how the historic fleet is maintained, see “secret” nooks and crannies, and get immersed in history while walking the entire length of Wavertree’s massive cargo hold. Also at 2pm and 4pm.
