Mystic Seaport Museum

Take a day and treat the family to a visit to the nation’s leading maritime museum. Immerse yourself in America’s maritime story. View world-class exhibitions of history, art and more in our indoor galleries. Climb aboard the last wooden whaleship in the world and feel what it was like to go to sea in the Great Age of Sail. Meet blacksmiths, coopers, printers, and shipwrights hard at work. See the stars in our planetarium and get out on the water in a rented sailboat or rowboat, or sit back and take a short cruise on the Mystic River on our steamboat. And when you get hungry, settle in for a casual meal or drink at Schaefer’s Spouter Tavern, The Galley, or Latitude 41° Restaurant. Find your adventure all year long at Mystic Seaport Museum.

  1. Are there any hotels or inns on the Mystic River? We are visiting Sept. 22 to Sept. 24. Any other waterfront lodging close by?

  2. My great grandfather and great-great grandfather were both ship carpenters in the late 1800s/early 1900s. They lived, worked and the GGF died in Noank, Groton, CT. We’re thinking about coming down from upstate VT for a visit. Does the Mystic Seaport Maritime Museum cover what they might have done as ship carpenters?

    1. Thank you for your comment and question about your family’s history as ship carpenters…very interesting! The Seaport has a wealth of historical information and a working shipyard where you can watch craftsmen, including carpenters at work. To contact the Seaport directly: 860.572.0711 | 888.973.2767 |
