depend on your intrests and what you like to do. I think 2days would be plenty of time to do everything the seaport offers but thats more than most people spend. average time would be 1day given time to tour the buildingsand ships do some of the programs go one a river boat ride etc. you can do a basic tourist stop at the seaport in about 1/2 day more than enough time if your on a new englad trip.

It really depends on how much time you like to linger over the exhibits - you could breeze through in 2 hours or spend a full day - especially if the weather is nice - there are a lot of places to just sit and take in the scenery.

By the way, if you want to come back a 2nd day, get your ticket validated for a free second day (anytime in the next 7).

Also, if you buy your tix online save 10% with the code "sealegs10".

Thank you for the info... We will probably only really have no more than 4 hours to stay there, so it's good to know we could breeze through in 2 hours, we should be fine with 4.

You can take anywhere from 2 hours for the highlights to 2 days for the full experience. Great place! dont forget to stop at the Galley for lunch! If you call them they will email you all the information you need. The visitors center is wonderful.
