About Maritime Museum of San Diego


The Maritime Museum of San Diego enjoys a worldwide reputation for excellence in restoring, maintaining and operating historic vessels. The museum has one of the world’s finest collections of historic ships, including the world’s oldest active ship Star of India. Our collection of ships and exhibits are available for daily public tours. One of the best things to do in San Diego!


Maritime Museum of San Diego Education Programs

Explore the great age of sail and steam on San Diego’s downtown waterfront. At the Maritime Museum, children relive history and learn about the science of the sea. Our ships and collections represent San Diego’s great maritime heritage and bring our award-winning educational programs to life for thousands of children each year.

We offer a variety of educational programs for K-12 school groups, Scouts, Families, and Adults. Unique to the Maritime Museum is our ability set sail and take our ships out to sea for one or multi-day adventures, or take a historic longboat rowing in the San Diego Bay for youth or adult team building programs. Our specialized instructors facilitate education programs and workshops while Museum Guided Tours are led by our trained docents.
