we were disappointed when we walked up and found out the price you had to pay to get in. perhaps there are discount coupons online or something. we didn't go in and we probably won't be in the area again, but oh well.

We enjoyed our day at Mystic Seaport. I say “day” as it takes quite a while to see, read and experience all that is there. We were fascinated by the Viking and Vinland controversy exhibits. We appreciated the Cooperage, Print Shop, Cordage, boat restoring demonstrations.

Very interesting mid-19th century seaport. Whaling, fishing, lobstering, cooperating, rope walk, etc. Also, whaling ships and Viking boat including artifacts like helmets, swords and jewellery.

I would call the Mystic Hilton which is right across the street from the aquarium and ask them their proximity to the train station. There may be shuttles that take you from train to aquarium/seaport

There is a large parking lot across from the entrance - the new building that is supposed to look like wave.
