Lobster Days

Memorial Day Weekend

Hosted in Collaboration with the Mystic Rotary Club

Crack your first lobster claw of the season at Mystic Seaport’s butter-dribbling, shell-sucking, quintessentially New England Lobster Days during Memorial Day Weekend.

Lobsters in the rough are served by the Mystic Rotary Club. Lobster platters are served picnic-style under the Museum’s open-air Boat Shed where diners can watch boats cruising on the Mystic River and enjoy music of the sea. All proceeds from Memorial Day Weekend support the Mystic Rotary Club’s community organizations and projects.

Lobster dinners include either a single or twin lobster, coleslaw, corn on the cob, lemonade or iced tea. Hot dog platters with chips and a soft drink will also be available. A cash bar will be set up in the Boat Shed.

Explore exhibits and climb aboard ships. Take a cruise aboard the 1908 steamboat Sabino or get out on the water with a rental from the Boathouse. Celebrate the unofficial beginning of summer at Mystic Seaport!

Museum admission is required; food is purchased separately. Please check back soon for food pricing.
