Seaport Discovery: Exploring Our Waters with Eric Carle

Maritime wonderlands. Picture books come to life. The latest exhibition at the South Street Seaport Museum—Seaport Discovery: Exploring our Waters with Eric Carle—is designed specifically for children aged 2–7. In a discovery room of wonder, huge murals take visitors into the world of Carle’s book A House for Hermit Crab and the cargo-ship adventures of 10 Little Rubber Ducks. Kids will also enjoy activities—like meeting a live hermit crab and learning about cargo ships through the eyes of a rubber duck.

After visiting the discovery room, families can explore the rest of the Seaport Museum’s galleries, participate in more family activities, and find out how the fleet of historic ships connect to Carle’s art with Pay What You Wish General Admission. Advanced reservations are recommended.
