Combining the educational breadth of a museum with the excitement of interactive activities, Mystic Seaport brings bygone maritime traditions back to vibrant life. interpreters offer expert insight on the exhibits, and share period-appropriate stories in the re-created-19th-century seafaring village. Witness the process of restoring old boats at the Preservation Shipyard, or see the ancient vessels themselves floating on the water. Should the sea catch your fancy during the warm seasons, you can even go for a trip around the point, renting boats or arriving in your own. Children 5 and younger are admitted free.

Mystic Seaport

The fresh breezes that buffet Mystic's shoreline probably feel much the same as they did 150 years ago, so it's a fitting place to find America's nautical history resurrected. Called Mystic Seaport: The Museum of America and the Sea, includes 19 acres of exhibition space. In addition to the museum proper, the complex hosts a recreated 19th-century sea-faring village, a working shipyard, and extensive gardens that blanket the grounds. Live museum staff lead demonstrations and performances throughout, even welcoming guests aboard the National Historic Landmark vessels moored in port. On Wednesdays through Mondays, captains take visitors out on the water in a coal-fired steamboat to experience the river and town from a different angle. They also rent out their small boats seasonally, to visitors who can comfortably handle being in charge of a boat. When tired of ship studying and naval gazing, guests can head to the Treworgy Planetarium and turn their eyes to the stars, learning how to chart courses in the manner of ancient captains, modern astronauts, and late-night deliverymen.
