Winter’s Aweigh

Children receive free admission!

Join us during President’s Day Weekend as we celebrate our winter reopening with family-fun activities. All children ages 17 and under will receive free admission when accompanied by a paying adult.

Back by popular demand, winter working dogs will visit Mystic Seaport to demonstrate various work tasks and also be available for petting. Newfoundlands will visit Saturday, February 14; St. Bernards will be on grounds Sunday, February 15; and Malamutes and Huskies will visit Monday, February 16.

Try your hand at an art project, help build a life-sized milk jug igloo, and create a 19th-century winter scene at our Print Shop. Play games of long ago and listen to music and stories of the sea. Children are invited to build a toy boat keepsake, stop by the Children’s Museum for story time, explore a sea chest, and get a kids’-eye view of the 1841 whaleship Charles W. Morgan.

Explore exhibits, climb aboard tall ships, see a Planetarium program, and more. Enjoy President’s Day Weekend at Mystic Seaport!
