Autumn at Mystic Seaport

A Busy Start to Fall

September is always a busy month in many respects, even though there is a temptation to think that post Labor Day things will settle down.

School Group

Back to School!

As a former educator, I still can’t seem to shake off my old profession that awakens with the onset of Labor Day.

CHARLES W. MORGAN

One Powerful Thing

As the homecoming of the MORGAN looms later this week, we find our 38th Voyage emotions, almost three months after it began, changing from anticipation to reflection.

New Bedford Homecoming!

As the CHARLES W. MORGAN made the turn from Martha’s Vineyard Sound through Quick’s Hole and set sail, it was clearly on the minds of all aboard the Morgan that the final segment of her historic homeward leg on Buzzards Bay was upon us.

The Charles W. Morgan went under Mystic's Bascule Bridge on May 17 for the first time since November, 1941.

Grateful

We are grateful for the outpouring of emotion and appreciation for the Morgan’s long restoration voyage and the preparation for her return to sea.

A Big Year

As we closed the 2014 fiscal year on April 30, I’d like to thank the entire Mystic Seaport community for making it so successful.

In Honor of Captains

A friend of the Museum recently surprised me with an interesting letter which included a poem by Stephen Vincent Benet called “Clipper Ships and Captains.”

Museum Advocacy

On February 24 and 25, the American Alliance of Museums (AAM) hosted its 6th annual Museums Advocacy Days in Washington, D.C.

It’s a Partnership

We could not achieve all that we aspire toward without the aid and support or our many partners.

The Final Countdown Begins

The long-anticipated year is now here, and what a busy, momentous one it will be as the final countdown to the Charles W. Morgan’s 38th Voyage begins.
