Step back in time aboard one of Northwest Seaport’s extraordinary ships at Historic Ships Wharf in beautiful Lake Union Park. Explore the restored, Arthur Foss, the world’s oldest wooden tugboat! Experience the awesome LV-83 SWIFTSURE, the massive, floating lighthouse of the sea, and the only steam-powered Lightship of its kind. And welcome our latest addition, the tough-as-nails fishing boat, Tordenskjold. This real-life vessel worked the frigid high seas of the North Pacific and Bering Sea for more than 100 years!
Pick up a tool and learn some new skills, join us for festivals and community events, spend the night aboard, take an engine room class, or volunteer with us! There’s no shortage of things to do at Northwest Seaport so come down to Lake Union and be a part of our region’s rich maritime legacy.
Parking at Lake Union Park can be challenging. There are pay lots and limited street parking in the neighborhood and along Westlake Avenue North, and the Park is serviced by several mass transit options.
