Mystic Seaport is an authentic seafaring village. It is a historical resource. We are members and are honored to support its mission.

We loved this museum! There is so much to see and do here - everything is well maintained and the people are very knowledgeable about the seaport. You can even climb on some old boats/ship. There is a dock and lots of run around space.

I haven't been to the Seaport in a few of years, but have been there several times as a kid and with my young boys. Fully experience colonial life with the staff that are in complete colonial character and dress. They explain what colonial life was like, how they did their jobs. There's a boat building shop and several tall... More

The Mystic Seaport is a great stop on a vacation. Having gone as a kid and loving it I often thought of returning. Many years later we finally did. An enjoyable and historic seaport.
