Kicking Off a New Year

With the simple turn of a page on the calendar, Mystic Seaport closed its fiscal year Saturday, April 30, and opened a new one the next day.

At the end of the day on March 28, the last visitor left “Ships, Clocks &Stars,” officially bringing to closure what has been an extraordinary exhibition.

Time is Running Out!

March is the last month to see “Ships, Clocks and Stars: The Quest for Longitude” again or for the first time before it closes on March 29.
