I can't imagine a better place to spend a day walking aimlessly around in. You're surrounded by the beautiful water, an array of boutique stores and restaurants, and a great atmosphere. Be sure to check out the iconic Mystic Pizza (from the movie), grab some ice cream by the draw bridge, and shop around. I guarantee you'll have an awesome... More

We visited Mystic Seaport on last Friday morning, it was a perfect morning to visit. We arrived before 10am and it was not crowded at all. We walked around in and out of few buildings, there were a few things that were notable. First, the woman that was in the Buckingham-Hall House was very knowledge and shared with us great... More

Our boat club made this a stop on our Rendezvous. We used the Marina in the back of the grounds. As a marina it had minimal accomodations, but the location was a fun historic spot. We had exclusive use of the grounds after hours and were able to stroll and have drinks on the gazebo. The grounds are beautiful. We... More

I went here with my family, great place to just walk around and see the sites. The boats were nice to look at, not much as far as gift stores or other activities. Just walking around and looking around got old.

We visited the seaport in the middle of the winter on a really cold and snowy day! It was President's Weekend and there some special events at the seaport. My first grader and second grader were very interested in the little presentations of the history of the houses and shops. It was a nice day out with my family!

Fantastic museum for seafaring history, with an amazing collection of vessels of all types. Don't expect the historic buildings to be properly interpreted, however - disappointing in that regard.

Mystic Seaport allows you to bring in your dog as long as you stay in the outside areas. We were even able to have a lovely lunch at an outdoor restaurant under the trees.

I really like the Seaport! It is a very nice area to spend the day at. The food is also great too. The free water shuttle is a great feature. I enjoy the Seaport much more than the aquarium.

We found that it was well worth the 12 extra dollars to buy a year membership than a general admission pass for the 4 of us. With the membership we got a sporty baseball cap that my husband loves, free lemonade whenever we were thirsty during the visit, and 10 percent off in the restaurant and gift shop. The kids... More
