Los Angeles

Maritime Museum

The maritime and shipping history of Los Angeles is on display at this wonderful, small but comprehensive museum located on the harbor in the 1941 Municipal Ferry Terminal. Kids of all ages as well as adults will love the interactive games and activities in the children’s exhibit. Learn how cranes work, imagine yourself in one of the “20,000 jobs under the sea,” visit the diver’s locker and look out to sea through binoculars. Model ships, a front-row view of busy ship traffic, and exhibits of art created by sailors while at sea will keep the family engaged for about 1-2 hours.

Learn about the USS Los Angeles, a Navy heavy cruiser through artifacts and ship relics inside as well as monuments outside. The history of San Pedro’s fishing and canning industries is a fascinating look at the fishing capital of the nation for much of the 20th century. Generations of fishermen caught and sold tuna, sardines, mackerel, and squid on nearby Terminal Island. If you’ve ever purchased Starkist or Chicken-of-the-Sea tuna fish, you’ll be interested to know this is where they were born!

Outside the building is the John S. Gibson Memorial Park with a fountain and a collection of monuments and memorials. Referred to as a “pocket park” this narrow strip pays tribute to the American Merchant Marines and all those visionaries who toiled on the waterfront so many years ago, paving the way for modern day Los Angeles.

*The Maritime Museum is included in the Sightseeing Pass as a bonus opiton for free (does not count towards one of your choices).

Location: 600 Sampson Way, San Pedro CA 90731
Horus: Tuesday – Sunday 10am – 5pm (last entry 4:30pm)
