Mystic Seaport Museum

Get outdoors, breathe in the clean fresh air, and immerse yourself in history on our 19 acre grounds along the beautiful Mystic River! 

Take a day, or two, and treat your family with a visit to the nation’s leading maritime museum! Climb aboard the Charles W. Morgan, the last wooden whaleship in the world and experience what it was like to go to sea in the Great Age of Sail. Meet blacksmiths, coopers, printers, and shipwrights hard at work in our recreated 19th century seafaring village. Learn about the planets and the stars in our planetarium and get out on the water in a sailboat or rowboat from our boathouse. Do you prefer a more relaxed ride? Sit back and take a short cruise on the Mystic River aboard our launch Liberty. Explore world-class exhibitions of history, art and more in one of our galleries. When you get hungry, settle in for a casual meal or drink at Schaefer’s Spouter Tavern, The Galley, or Latitude 41° Restaurant.

  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 |
