Explore our seafaring village aboard a horse-drawn carriage ride.

There’s so much to see and do, you may need more than a day here.

Discover maritime history firsthand throughout our re-created seafaring village that is bustling with the sights and sounds of 19th-century life. Climb aboard historic vessels, including the last wooden whaleship in the world, the Charles W. Morgan. Explore exhibits that offer a unique perspective of our nation’s history with the sea and voyages on the water. During the warmer months, visit the Boathouse to captain your own rowboat or sailboat.

See a working preservation shipyard in action, watch interpreters demonstrate maritime skills, and listen to chanteymen perform music of the sea and shore. Stroll through gardens that accentuate the beauty and historical context of the Mystic River and do a little stargazing under the Treworgy Planetarium dome.

No matter your age or the season, there’s always something new to see and do at Mystic Seaport.
