About The Waterfront Museum:
The Waterfront Museum was founded in 1986 to provide programs in education and culture aboard an historic vessel and to advocate for and expand public waterfront access in the NY Metropolitan area. It relocated to Red Hook in 1994. Performances will take place both in the barge as well as on nearby Pier 44. We recommend planning ahead and spending an evening in Red Hook. It’s a bit off the beaten path, but a thriving artistic community lives here which supports a small and vibrant culinary scene.
There are no direct subway routes to the Waterfront Barge Museum. You must continue from the train to the B61 bus.
From A, C or F trains: Get off at Jay St. Metrotech station. Walk south along Jay St (which becomes Smith St) to Livingston where you can catch the B61.
From 2, 3, 4, 5 or R trains. Get off at Borough Hall (2, 3, 4, 5) or Court St (R) Stations. Walk south along Court St to Atlantic Ave. Catch the B61 on Atlantic Ave just around the corner from Court St.
