What To Expect

Make your way to Mystic Seaport in Mystic, Connecticut, and present this voucher for admission to “The Museum of America and of the Sea.” You have the entire day to explore the seafaring village, galleries, and ships, with plenty of time to experience the things that interest you most.

Don’t miss the remarkable Charles W. Morgan, a square-rigged whaling vessel that’s the oldest American commercial ship still afloat (only the USS Constitution is older). Staff and historians are on hand throughout Mystic Seaport to answer questions and help bring America’s maritime history to life. Visit a cooperage, ship-smith, print shop, and a ship carver’s workshop, where you can learn about daily work in a 19th-century coastal town. Even Mystic Seaport’s gardens tell a story about 19th-century America, with a pair of reproduction historic gardens from the humming Industrial Age.

Save plenty of time for the museum’s exhibition halls, where permanent and changing exhibits explore maritime history, art, and culture: find figureheads, vintage photography, restored vessels, carvings, and more.

Lots to learn about shipbuilding
jlbarth, Aug 2021
We enjoyed talking with the guides who were available throughout the Museum. They were friendly and very knowledgeable. Climbing up to go on the Morgan--whaling ship was well worth the climb. We learned lots about shipbuilding.
Educational and Historic
Cheryl_H, Apr 2021
This is a really interesting, educational outdoor "museum" where you can take 3 hours (or more) to see everything, if you have the time. It is spread out over 19 acres by the water. It was a pleasure to walk leisurely through each "exhibit" boat, shed, house etc. Exhibits are labeled well. The Stillman Building on whaling is packed with historical content which could take an hour to see if you really get into it. We visited after it rained so the ground was muddy with big puddles, so be prepared.
Nice quiet time to visit.

We really enjoyed Mystic Seaport. Unfortunately it was a rainy day, but we certainly didn't have to worry about crowds due to the weather. It was interesting to walk the the boat yard and see the boat they were restoring. The tall ships and the guides were very interesting. We found the people working there to be very knowledgeable and friendly. Really enjoyed the quaintness of the village and the buildings.
