There are things to see & do that will engage every family member: interactive exhibits; skits & re-enactments; colonial actors in period costume; galleries & ships to visit. There are 50 buildings ranging from art galleries to a working shipyard where you can watch craftsmen work on the bare bones of a current wooden ship restoration project. Learn about the... More

If you are interested in history this is a good place to go. Some of the things we enjoyed there, 1. The singing of shanty's in the chapel. Our singer was good and involved the crown quite a bit. 2. The two sailing ships. One was a whaler, not sure about the other one but very interesting. You can go... More

A fun day with plenty to see and do for all ages! An entrance fee (there are AAA discounts) gives you access to the entire seaport area, with some extra charges (but extremely reasonable!) for other attractions like a ride on a boat or sailboat, or a carriage ride. The seaport is not huge, but has enough to see and... More

So much to do and see for all ages and the kids (boys and girls (9-12) loved the boat making workshop and the craft one as well. Staff is very knowledgeable and friendly. Don't miss the... More

a great working harbor to see what the life was like for the seafarers of old. the best time to go is at Christmas time when the whole place is decorated and houses have trees in them like the old days. It is better than plymouth plantation and I would say to make sure and have a Mystic pizza while... More

nice, slow, exploration of the Mystic Seaport museum - plan to take the better part of a day - I was pleasantly surprised to find that it's a bit more than I expected to see there.

Mystic Seaport is a lot of fun for all ages. Went here with my boyfriend and toured around the whole place. The highlights were the Charles W Morgan and a harbor boat tour.
