Stroll Through a Recreated 19th-Century Seafaring Village
Looking for the latest styles in hoop skirts and haberdashery? Stroll through our recreated seafaring village, comprised up of dozens of real New England buildings staffed with historians, musicians, storytellers and craftspeople who bring our seafaring past to life.
The buildings you see aren’t replications–they’re trade shops and businesses from the 1800s that were transported to Mystic Seaport Museum from locations around New England. The village is made up of many bustling maritime trades, from shipsmiths and coopers to woodcarvers and riggers. Discover how America’s maritime past shaped life today.
