About Us

The Philadelphia Ship Model Society was founded in 1931, making it one of the oldest continuously active ship model clubs in the United States.  We are devoted to the building of both radio controlled and static ship models; and to the study of Naval and Maritime history.

The PSMS meets monthly on the first Thursday of each month at 7:00 PM.   Our meetings are held at the Independence Seaport Museum.  Please click on "Calendar" to the left for a schedule of our meetings and events; and "Club Headquarters" for directions.  

Our monthly meetings include an interesting program on techniques of model building or naval history, and often feature a guest speaker.  We enjoy wonderful camaraderie, great programs, and fantastic refreshments!
