We spent a wonderful day at the Mystic Seaport. So much to see. Everyone that works there is super friendly and really gets into character. You feel like you stepped back in time. We learned a lot. Loved the Captain Morgan and watching the crew bring down the sails while they sang. Also loved the 25 minute boat ride ($3... More

I've been hearing about this attraction for years so when we found ourselves in this area, we felt we should go. It wasn't at all what I expected and I felt it was a bit overpriced.

We had a great time. Enjoyed touring the ships and the buildings. Were there when the wooden boat show was there and that was a great bonus. Really like the planetarium show.

I went with a teen and a college student. After reading the reviews here , I thought we could see it all in 3 hours... it took us 2 days. One thing I would recommend is spending the extra money for the boat tour on the river. It was $3/ person. We saved this for our last activity and it... More

A family favorite and worth the trip. There's a lot to do and see for all ages. We pack a picnic and enjoy it while watching the "breeches buoy rescue" demo on the big lawn. Then walk all around and see the various demos and things to see including the Morgan, recently restored. If you have kids, don't miss the... More

My wife and I enjoyed seeing all that the Mystic Seaport had to offer. It was Wooden Boat Weekend and it was very busy. There is a lot to see and we saw most of it on Friday and saw the remainder on Saturday. I would be careful to bring young kids here. Some will appreciate it and some will... More

First time at mystic seaport and it was so much more than I expected!! From outside doesn't look like much but once you go in you could easily spend multiple days exploring and learning. My husband is big into the ships and history on whaling and he was like a kid in a candy shop! Everyone was so nice and... More

Went to visit and was impressed by the service we received. We ended up becoming a member. We asked a question about the steamboat being restored and was impressed that one of the guys restoring it talked to us for 15 minutes. So polite and felt so welcomed he was not annoyed by our questions. We could tell he takes... More
