Explore America’s maritime history with admission to Mystic Seaport, and spend the day in a recreated 1870’s seafaring village. Meet ship smiths, coopers, and riggers, climb aboard historic tall ships, and step back in time at a series of constantly rotating maritime galleries. Admission to Mystic Seaport includes full access to the 19-acre (7.7-ha) campus and three tall ships, with parking onsite.
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’ll 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.

Although mystic village is showing...
Although mystic village is showing outwardly their age, they have updated a few exhibits
with hands on technology. We are senior citizens and found the exhibits interesting. Young
may find it boring
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.
