What a beautiful ship. We loved walking the decks and hearing about the history. One of the guides on deck was very short with us when we asked him questions. We also got into a debate about Whale Wars where he called them pirates and said they do more harm than good. I politely disagreed with him and he said... More

As a frequenter of the Seaport, I have always found (and will continue to find) this ship incredible. The Morgan was impressive even before the refurbishment. Now she is even more stunning, though.

We entered by the alternate gate away from the hustle from the parking lot. The pathway lead directly to the vessel.

Interesting to be on a ship from that era and see how they sailors lived, makes you appreciate space and privacy. Should not be missed for any seafaring lovers.

If you are at the Seaport do not hesitate to take a walk aboard the Charles W Morgan. It is not only an amazing part of history, but last year it actually took a voyage!

Great ship. Interesting restoration story. I was not impressed with the Seaport experience. This the the crown jewel of the Seaport. Too bad the fee is so high to get in

We visit at least 2x a year. Combines history with a family friendly atmosphere. We have come with the grandparents and our child. All were entertained and happy.

A fascinating ship! A step back in time! We also saw her as she left Martha's Vinyard under sail to sail to New Bedford. I couldn't get enough of her!
