“Step Back into Maritime History”
Reviewed 30 July 2014

If you love boats and seafaring this exhibit of three boats is worth a visit. (I prefer this kind of place to the usual overcrowded mega-museums.) The boats have been lovingly restored and give a great view of life aboard a working boat a century ago. Not a major stop, but a great way to spend an hour. Added plus: Sea planes taking off and landing nearby.

“Interesting place to visit on Lake Union”
Reviewed 3 October 2013

This is an interesting place to walk around in the south Lake Union area. One can view several unusual historic ships docked behind the Museum of Industry. It did not seem that any of the ships were open for visitors. However, another historic ship not part of the Northwest Seaport was open and offered free tours lasting about 20 minutes. This is the Virginia V and the tour was guided by a very knowledgeable crew member. Walking around to look at the other ships and also taking the tour was very worthwhile and while doing so you get a good look at the activities of boats and seaplanes on Lake Union.
