The museum is pleased to offer educational tours throughout the year at no charge.

The museum is located on the Main Channel of Los Angeles Harbor. Students will have a front-row opportunity to see the massive container ships in action and learn about international trade, ship terminology, sailor’s art, and the history of the working people who built Los Angeles harbor into the nation’s busiest container port.

Tours are free for grades K-12, Wednesday –Friday mornings, and reservations are REQUIRED. The museum is unable to accommodate group tours without a reservation.

Call the tour hotline at 310-548-2900 and schedule your tour today, or email info@lamaritimemuseum.org.

For adult tour groups, there is a suggested donation of $5.00 for adults, $3.00 for seniors.  These donations allow the museum to keep the children’s tours free.
