Pirate Days

April 16 - April 17

Avast, ye hearties, Mystic Seaport Museum’s Pirate Days returns, guaranteed to bring a treasure trove of fun for the whole family!

Grab your pirate map and put those navigation skills to the test to find the secret loot. Pirate lads and lasses of all ages will love our games, crafts, and story time with a pirate. Enjoy a rousing performance of “Arr You Ready to be a Pirate” to learn fact vs. fiction in the age of piracy.
