Support the Charles W. Morgan Restoration and 38th Voyage
Launched in 1841, the Charles W. Morgan sailed for 80 years. Today she remains the last wooden whaleship in the world and an icon of America's seafaring history. Pulitzer Prize-winning historian David McCullough said, "The story of the American whaling industry, which the Morgan so powerfully represents, is a rousing chapter in American history. She is emblematic of a vastly larger story and her restoration will enable Mystic Seaport to continue telling this story for years into the future." Read additional statements of support for the Morgan.
More than 20 million visitors have come to Mystic Seaport to walk her deck and experience American maritime heritage in a unique and personal way. With your support, the Morgan can continue to educate and serve future generations as a vessel of lifelong learning.
Your support will also ensure that the restored Morgan will sail once more for her 38th Voyage. Restoring and sailing the whaleship is a full expression of Mystic Seaport's dual responsibilities of stewardship and education, unmistakably demonstrating the institution's leadership in the Museum field. This endeavor will preserve the Morgan for future generations and add significantly to the historic record through unprecedented research and documentation.
