A banshee has taken up residence on Mystic’s wharfs, and the villagers demand an end to her shenanigans! However, this is easier said than done when the town is inhabited by all manner of eccentric folk – mortal and otherwise.Learn More
Lantern Light Tours
For the 40th Anniversary of the Museum’s Lantern Light Tours, tour-goers will immediately recognize the influences of that most Victorian of Christmas tales, Charles Dickens’s 1843 "A Christmas Carol."Learn More
Find Your Adventure
Climb aboard the last wooden whale ship in the world. Meet blacksmiths, coopers, printers, and shipwrights in an authentic setting. View world-class exhibitions in our five galleries. See the stars in our planetarium and take a waterfront cruise.
If you love boats and ships this is the place to go. My favorite thing is you can go to the boathouse and rent a rowboat or sailboat and cruise around the harbor. How many museums let you play with their toys?
Had a wonderful, full day exploring the old ships. The volunteers were knowledgeable and enjoyed telling stories about the ships' history, and the restoration work. Also got a peek at the Mayflower II being refurbished.
I have been many times as a child, and just spent 2 days in Mystic and at the Seaport with my own children, ages 5 and 3. We had the best time. Great activities for the kids and adults. Time and money well spent - educational, different, uplifting, and interesting.
Great family experience! My kids loved touring the boats, candle making, boat building and blacksmith welding with Bill. The views are amazing and most of staff was excellent. Highly recommend!
