The Independence Seaport Museum is also a very important place. You can see many good facilities and projects in this museum. The decoration in the museum is also quite special and important.
Visited in September 2018. The museum is good, but I am here for Olympia, USA. I visited this ship for the first time in 1976 and I am glad to see it again. Well-preserved examples of naval life around 1900. The ship is still beautiful, and the exhibits on the ship are also rich. If you like submarines, the American Becuna is also good.
This is a commemorative museum that displays a lot of Philadelphia's shipbuilding history. Many precious things can be appreciated. The shipbuilding history and I are very good. Some warships from World War II were still built here.
The Independent Seaport Museum in Philadelphia emphasizes the role of Philadelphia as an immigration center. The exhibits are very interesting. Its shipyard closed in 1995 after 200 years of operation. The main exhibits are the cruiser "Olympia", the flagship of the U.S. Navy Super Admiral Dewey during the Spanish-American War, and the SS319 Barracuda, the heroic submarine of World War II.
This is a valuable asset for the Philadelphia museum. The sea is an important part of the history of the city. However, this museum needs to be updated. These days, glass cabinets are not enough to attract people. I recently went to the Transport Museum in Glasgow, Scotland-the maritime exhibits are great-worth checking out the manager/owner of this museum. The US submarine and USS Olympics are an award.
