Northwest Seaport is grateful to have support from hundreds of individuals, local maritime companies, private foundations as well as city, county, state, and federal granting agencies. There are too many to name here, but this broad range of support from all levels is essential to the long-term preservation of our maritime heritage here in the Pacific Northwest.
Northwest Seaport has two National Historic Landmark museum ships permanently docked at Lake Union Park's Historic Ships Wharf in Seattle--the tugboat ARTHUR FOSS (1889) and Lightship No. 83 SWIFTSURE (1904) as well as the newly acquired fishing boat, Tordenskjold (1911). These vessels are open for public tours and provide a unique platform for festivals, special events, and hands-on education programs and vocational training.
