PhillyBite10Philadelphia's Olympia War Ship, the world’s oldest surviving steel warship still afloat. This ship led the first victory at sea during the Spanish-American War and was Admiral Dewey’s flagship during the Battle of Manila Bay. The admiral’s quarters, sailors’ sleeping hammocks, gun turrets and other artifacts offer a glimpse into life at sea during the 19th century. 211 S. Columbus Boulevard, phillyseaport.org
