South Street Seaport Museum

At this time last year, the future of the South Street Seaport Museum was decidedly uncertain; financial issues plagued the institution, which closed in March 2011. But with assistance from the Museum of the City of New York (which agreed to take over the institution's operations, buoyed by a grant from the Lower Manhattan Development Corporation), the Seaport Museum reopens to the public today. Visitors can see artifacts from the museum's vast collection of maritime items, as well as a number of installations that examine the city's history. Among the new exhibits are "Occupy Wall Street: A Photographic Document," featuring images of protestors by more than a dozen photographers, and "Manahatta: Manhattan in 1609," which takes inspiration from MCNY's 2009 exhibit based on Eric Sanderson's research into 17th-century New York. South Street Seaport Museum, 12 Fulton St at South St (212.748.8600, seany.org). Wed--Sun 10am--6pm; $5, children under 9 free.
