Los Angeles Maritime Museum

Berth 84, Foot Of 6th Street, San Pedro, CA 90731

The Los Angeles Maritime Museum is in the former Municipal Ferry Terminal building on the main channel of the Los Angeles Harbor. Exhibits include a history of commercial diving in Los Angeles Harbor, a Navy Hall that features large ship models such as the U.S. Navy cruiser Los Angeles and the Poseidon miniature from the 1972 disaster film. The museum also has an exhibit that chronicles the once thriving San Pedro fishing industry. Upstairs are models of merchant ships such as the Silverpalm, square riggers, sail boats, and also a fully operational ham radio station. The museum operates the tugboat Angels Gate, built in 1944 for the Army Transportation Service. The fireboat Ralph J. Scott, a U.S. National Historic Landmark, is docked nearby.
