Really interesting and informative museum. Was very cold and windy the day we visited so we really didn't do it justice! All the staff were very keen to tell us about their exhibits and cannot wait to go back (but in the sunshine)!
We are a family of tween and teens and really enjoyed the seaport. We are members of a 19th century historical farm in Pennsylvania and some of us have volunteered at that farm in costume doing first person interpretation. Since the time period of the...More
I've been coming to Mystic Seaport since 1988, first as a volunteer at the annual Sea Music Festival, and now as a Seaport Member. For those who love our nation's history and want to learn an important part of it, the Seaport is an enjoyable...More
We passed by this museum several times. It seems to us this museum is always closed. We didn’t get to go in. I guess if it is not always “available” it is hard to really rate it. I guess I should just say unavailable.
I have been on this tour the last 8 years and this year was different, but still very enjoyable. It might even be my favorite. Almost every scene made you think about yourself and others . ‘‘Tis the season “ for goodwill . All the...More
Lantern Tour made no sense. We were expecting a festive night of Christmas cheer, and got a confusing, disconnected series of poorly acted skits that left us asking , “what is going on?” ...Mystic is a wonderful town with so much beauty but definitely skip...More
This evening lantern light tour misses the mark completely. This may be a 1700’s village but safety should be more important than atmosphere. Walking on the tour is dark & hazardous. We were so busy trying to see where we were walking that we never...More

The Olde Mystic village is right off the interstate and it is mostly shops and that is where the visitor center is. Further down the road is the Mystic Seaport Museum. There are 2 parts to the Mystic Seaport museum which one a village of old buildings from what was in a traditional seaport and two you have the ships that are docked there, all for the same price. If you only have 2 - 3 hours with wheelchair, head to the seaport museum. There is much more to do and see. We spent 2 days seeing everything but my mother is handicapped and walks very slowly with a cane. Hope that helps to clear up what
Hi, We're planning a family road trip with kids 8-12 year old. Starting in NJ, 2 night stay in Mystic seaport, 3-4 nights in Hyannis and would love to add another stop for 2-3 nights after that within a couple of hours. Would it make sense to move to Provincetown or is it too similar/close to Hyannis to make a separate destination. I'd like some place that is distinctly different and preferably not Boston.

Provincetown is distinctly different from everywhere else in the country. You should check it out.
Where to stop between Newport, RI and Norwalk, CT? (8 Replies)
We are flying to Providence and spending a few days in Newport, RI, before driving to Norwalk, CT for a wedding. I am trying to decide where to stop for a few hours for lunch and a stroll on the way - Stonington, Mystic, or somewhere not yet on my radar? We will be two adults, no kids. We will not have time to actually see Mystic Seaport or a similar attraction. Just looking for somewhere quaint/authentic to stroll, window shop (galleries, boutiques, etc.), and have a nice lunch.

Mystic Seaport would be the best place to linger...but Newport Rhode Island if you haven't been there before would really be the best place of them all to stay a few days. Lots of little shops within striking distance both in Newport proper and short drives away. This is really the area for quaint places and such. Mystic would be next whether you plan on visiting the WHOLE attraction or not. Lots of businesses around , things to see etc. You could always visit the famed MYSTIC PIZZA of...More
mystic seaport groupon (2 Replies)
Hello, On Groupon, I see some sold out Mystic Seaport deals. Does anyone know if they appear on Groupon in any kind of pattern, or when I could expect to snag one? Trying to plan a vacation and wondering if I can expect to find a discount, or if I should make other plans. Are there any other ways to get discounted admission to the seaport? Thanks

I don't think they do Groupon deals anymore, or at least not with any regularity. The Mystic Pass, AAA discounts, or library passes are probably a better bet.
