The top reason to come here are for tours of the historic sailing vessels the museum has moored off Pier 16 (it owns six, and some take visitors out on sails; consult the website for a schedule). Other than that, the museum has been reduced to a “ye olde printing shoppe,” some walking tours, and a small exhibit of wall text and some artifacts.
