Self-guided tours offer educators the freedom to handcraft their visits to Mystic Seaport. Groups are encouraged to climb aboard the whaleship Charles W. Morgan, visit a working shipyard, go back in time to a 19th-century coastal village, and experience the Museum’s current exhibitions. Mystic Seaport offers a daily schedule of activities, demonstrations, and performances. Activities offered between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. are especially geared toward students.
Additional on-site experiences are available and can be scheduled for a nominal fee. See a Planetarium show, take a horse and carriage ride, and interact with a roleplayer right out of 1876!
We have new online resources available for educators and chaperones who choose to explore the Museum on their own, including itineraries for chaperones and a Seaport Sleuth activity using photos of items on our grounds.
