Winter’s Aweigh

Children receive free admission!

Join us during President’s Day Weekend as we celebrate our winter reopening. 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 will visit Mystic Seaport throughout the weekend. The dogs will demonstrate various winter work tasks and be available for petting from 10:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Malamutes will be on grounds Saturday, February 15; Newfoundlands will visit Sunday, February 16; and St. Bernards will be on Museum grounds Monday, February 17.

Get creative in our Inspiration Station and try your hand at an art project, stop by the Print Shop and create a 19th-century winter scene, and watch a planetarium show. Kids, visit our Toy Boat Workshop to build your very own keepsake, stop by the Children’s Museum for winter storytime, make music with the Foo Foo children’s band, 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. Make the most of President’s Day Weekend at Mystic Seaport!

Additional fees apply to toy boat building, horse and carriage rides, and planetarium programs. Horse and carriage rides are weather dependent.
