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!

Members of the Mystic Rotary Club will serve lobsters-in-the-rough from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day. Enjoy your lobster picnic-style under the Museum’s open-air Boat Shed while watching boats cruising on the Mystic River. All proceeds from lobster sales support the 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 open at the Boat Shed.
