The Maritime Industry Museum is housed on the campus of the State University of New York (SUNY) Maritime College at historic Fort Schuyler, The Bronx, New York.

The museum was established in 1986 when Capt. Jeffrey Monroe, a former Associate Professor of Transportation at the Maritime College, with the help of Jack Hayes, a 1947 engineer graduate of the college. Since then, steamship lines, related companies in the maritime industry, and merchant marine history buffs donated objects and artifacts to supplement the museum collection.

The museum offers one of the largest collections of maritime industry materials in the nation and is displayed chronologically.

The main exhibit area located on the second floor is entitled "The Evolution of Seafaring" and encompasses the history of seafaring from the ancient Phoenicians to present day steamship companies and passenger ship lines. Exhibits in the area include paintings, models of early sailing vessels, clipper ships, turn of the century vessels up to and including the present day, as well as tools and navigational instruments of bygone days to modern times.

The museum collection serves as a depository for maritime industry books, periodicals, documents, papers, prints, photographs, and old steamship company records.
