A Cultural Treasure

Mystic Seaport was featured in an episode of CPTV’s “Connecticut’s Cultural Treasures,” a program that highlights the best of the arts and cultural institutions in the state, on May 24, 2014. CPTV’s film crew spent two days shooting on Museum grounds for the five-minute segment, and the producer later remarked that he had a difficult time trying to fit the many aspects of Mystic Seaport into such a short span of time. From the Museum’s vast Collections Research Center to the new web-based learning platform Mystic Seaport for Educators, the piece highlights the many ways Mystic Seaport staff and volunteers work daily to preserve and protect the authentic maritime experience.
