The Independence Seaport Museum: Telling History And Promoting A Vital Resource

Mending.jpg

Summer draws people to the water, but Philadelphia’s rivers are important to city residents year round. As WRTI's Susan Lewis reports, that’s the message of the Independence Seaport Museum, on the Delaware River at Penn's Landing.

The Independence Seaport Museum is open daily, with extended hours Thursday through Saturday during the summer. Tides of Freedom, an exhibition now at the Seaport Museum through 2015, tells of the role of the river in the African-American experience.
