New Year's Eve Fireworks

December 31 

Bring the entire family to Independence Seaport Museum to ring in New Year's Eve! 

Join us to celebrate the arrival of 2018 with noisemakers, party hats, and a ginger ale toast before the 6 p.m. Sugarhouse New Year's Eve Fireworks on the Waterfront.  

Be sure to arrive before 5 p.m. to visit the Museum galleries and Historic Ships, Cruiser Olympia and Submarine Becuna, which open at 10 a.m. Kids will love embarking on a holiday-themed scavenger hunt adventure throughout the Museum. Everything is included with regular Museum admission, even the best front-row views of the fireworks from our outdoor terraces.

Museum Members receive free admission but a registration for New Year's Eve Fireworks is appreciated in advance. Please check your emails or contact our Membership Department at 215-413-8626 or membership@phillyseaport.org to receive the special promotional code for advanced tickets.
