6. The Waterfront Museum


The Waterfront Museum speaks to an earlier time along the Red Hook shoreline in Brooklyn, and is located within an actual barge, The Lehigh Valley Railroad Barge #79. Built in 1914, it is the only one of its kind that is open to the public in the entire country. During the summer, the Museum makes its way to other ports with the help of a tugboat, bringing new meaning to the concept of a traveling exhibition!
