I enjoyed seeing the historical aspects and going aboard the ships. Most of the volunteers were so friendly. I met the nicest one on one of the ships

Here at last. We have been wanting to visit Mystic Seaport for ages but we were holding back until a time came when we could take a trip out to the Canadian Maritime Province and then include a drive back home using interstate 95. This was the time. We loved all things about ships and marine history. We live across... More

This was a nice place to visit and see old boats. They offer you a fee day to come back if you validate your ticket. We didn't use it because we saw everything in a day.

We visited on a beautiful fall day and I very much enjoyed being outside walking around and seeing the beautiful ships. There were a few you could board as well. There were numerous buildings in the "village", including a chapel, schoolhouse, displays of masts and paintings, a store which had various ship parts, etc. At the entrance of the location,... More

Mystic Seaport is worth seeing. It is no more expensive to get in than any other museum. The trick is to ask what deals they have. Like becoming a member for one example. There are interactive projects for the kids (and kids at heart) the interpreters are all around the grounds and love to tell you about anything in the... More

Lovely day trip. Lots to see and do, very informative. Awesome right near the water! Great little restaurants to eat at also. The Morgan ship is also here and you can see the work area where they built it. Horse and carriage rides and also little buildings and ships you can go on.

I'm sorry but I didn't enjoy my visit at all... first, it was EXPENSIVE. You have to really love boats to enjoy this attraction. The exhibits were disappointing boring in my opinion. If it cost $15 to go in, I could see it... For kids it is probably more interesting, especially the little show that some actors put on, as... More

Yes its not cheap and you do have to pay extra for some activities, but it is fun for everyone and is just a nice place to be! I love walking around. We had lunch at the Galley which was reasonably priced cafeteria like food. We had dinner one night at Latitude 41 which was great!
