  • Imagine 18th-century naval warfare and channel your inner Russel Crowe aboard HMS Surprise, the actual ship used in the movie Master and Commander
  • Step aboard the world's oldest operational ship, and venture below deck to exhibits nested aboard Star of India, which has been around the world 21 times
  • Board the Victorian-era Ferryboat Berkeley to see how steam power revolutionized the world, and admire the world's deepest-diving submarine: the USS Dolphin

Hoist the anchor of boredom and set your sails for an ocean of fun and fascinating history at the Maritime Museum of San Diego.

Before air travel killed the seafaring star, the world was shaped by swashbuckling adventures on the high seas. The Maritime Museum of San Diego takes you on an immersive voyage back across the tide of time to discover the fascinating stories of maritime history.

Climb aboard the oldest operational ship in the world, make believe you are a gunner aboard a real man-of-war ship in a naval battle royale, learn to navigate at sea by the stars, and more boat loads of fun await!

Present your smartphone voucher at the ticket booth located in front of the museum.
