Boats of the Wallabout Bay

Join us from the Brooklyn Navy Yard as we explore the different types of boats and ships built at the Yard over the past 200 years, and we'll get to see some of the ships that still visit the Wallabout Bay today, including ferries, tugboats, and the boats of the New York Fire Department. We will then do an activity where you will get to draw your own boats and create a paper cut-out theater for them to sail in!

Explore the science, industry, and the history of Brooklyn with our friends at Turnstile Tours at the Brooklyn Navy yard. Each morning we’ll join a live visit to learn about the industrial backbone of Brooklyn, from ship yards to factories!
