Los Angeles Maritime Museum

The Los Angeles Maritime Museum creates an awareness and appreciation of the maritime history of coastal California, with an emphasis on the people and institutions of the port city of Los Angeles.

The Museum is located in the 1941 Municipal ferry terminal, now on the National Register of Historic Places.

From 1941 to 1963, a ferries transported thousands of passengers to the canneries and military bases on Terminal Island, w
here they could also make connections to neighboring cities and towns.

Today the "ferry building" is still a place for making connections to the community and to our shared maritime experiences.

For current visiting hours, please visit the website of the museum.
