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, three breeds of winter working dogs–Newfoundlands, Malamutes, and St. Bernards–will visit Mystic Seaport. The dogs will demonstrate various winter work tasks and also be available for petting.

Try your hand at an art project, stop by the Print Shop and create a 19th-century winter scene, and discover the winter sky under our planetarium dome. 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, and take a horse and carriage ride through our 19th-century village. Enjoy President’s Day Weekend at Mystic Seaport!
