For Kids & Families

Calling our youngest sailors: see, touch, explore, and climb aboard! Swab the deck in the Children’s Museum, learn to tie knots at the Discovery Barn, create your own maritime masterpiece, build a toy boat souvenir, climb aboard our fleet of playscapes, and more. Take part in fun indoor and outdoor Mystic Seaport activities designed just for you.

Please note that some Mystic Seaport activities are seasonal. To find out if specific activities will be offered on the date of your intended visit, please check the Museum’s online daily activity schedule (located in the sidebar).
