South Street Seaport Museum

announces new exhibition

Millions: Migrants and Millionaires aboard the Great Liners, 1900-1914

Opening Reception: June 22, 2017 from 7-9pm

Exhibition dates: June 23, 2017 - January 7, 2018

The South Street Seaport Museum announces its newest exhibition, Millions: Migrants and Millionaires aboard the Great Liners, 1900-1914 beginning on June 23, 2017, open Wednesday-Sunday 11am-7pm, at the Museum's mezzanine gallery level, accessible from the main entrance of the Museum on 12 Fulton Street. An Opening Reception will be held Thursday, June 22, 2017 from 7-9pm, RSVP required. Visit southstreetseaportmuseum.org for reservation info.

 

From 1900 to 1914, nearly 13 million immigrants traveling in Third Class arrived in the United States. During this same period, America's wealthiest citizens, totaling no more than a hundred thousand passengers each year, traveled to Europe in First Class, spending over $11.5 billion (2017) on luxury vacations. Even though First Class and Third Class sailed on the same ships, their journeys were worlds apart.

 

This exhibition will feature both original and reproduced artifacts from the South Street Seaport Museum's permanent collection including ocean liner memorabilia and ephemera, ceramics, and luggage trunks from both immigrants and First Class passengers. The exhibition will highlight a few ship models of New York Harbor working vessels that played critical roles in immigration, including a model of the Museum's lightship Ambrose (LV-87).
