Maritime Industry Museum at Fort Schuyler reviews

The other reviews are dead on. Off the beaten path - the BX40 bus via the 6 or D lines will get you to the college gate, and then a half mile walk. Poor signs - entry is in the inner courtyard of... more »
You know, not much is known here for first time visitors. Although its connected to a college there are several reasons on why its one of my favorite museums. 1) The quiet peaceful atmosphere. The museum is insde the fort and connected to the library. No one will bother you in your visit. If you come during the semester, you'll see students studying and on the weekends, you might even see some renovating the exhibits. Don't be afraid to ask questions here. 2) The museum itself. All the artifacts placed here are full of maritime history and a lot of them are very old. Although not very interactive (aside from the occasional wheels and bells), it's heavily informative. As you walk throughout the museum you can feel the historical significance throughout the exhibits. 3) The area. Food-wise, nah. However the museum is is very close to the gigantic east river. You're free to walk around campus breath in the fresh air, jog, fish,bike, or even enjoy the sufferings of the cadets walking around. The campus is a beautiful place and really adds a certain feel to the museum
First visiting the museum while my husband had to report to his NOSC. There are so many things to see (lots of artifacts) and much to learn about the Maritime industry and ships around the world. Another great museum inside the Maritime campus.
