Discover the Gardens at Mystic Seaport
We have a unique setting that contains plants of interest for everyone. Our trees, shrubs, and gardens are labeled indicating both the common and botanical name.
Mystic Seaport has re-created two 19th-century gardens which portray the social order, economy, and cultural pursuits brought about by the Industrial Age. Most plants used are heirloom varieties, many of which are popular today. In addition there is a children's zoo garden of plants with names like elephant ears to appeal to future gardeners.
Gardens are marked with on our Grounds Map.
