19th-Century VillageAdd to My Trip | View My Trip
Looking for the latest styles in hoop skirts and haberdashery? Stroll through our re-created 19th-century village, complete with Museum educators, musicians, and roleplayers who will teach you about each building’s role in a coastal community.
The buildings you see aren’t replications–they’re trade shops and businesses from the 1800s that were transported to Mystic Seaport from locations around New England. The village is comprised of many bustling maritime trades, from shipsmiths and coopers to woodcarvers and riggers.
Take a horse-drawn carriage ride, interact with folks from 1876, and stroll through the Museum’s gardens. Step back in time and experience life as it was in the 19th century.
