Useful information


This huge museum standing by the Delaware River puts on temporary exhibitions on the themes related to the navy, trade, immigration, so many areas that led to the port's growth. Two historical boats are anchored close by and can be visited: the USS Olympia, Admiral Dewey's cruiser (1892), and the USS Becuna, a Second World War submarine. The schooner Diligence is a replica of the 18C original.
