About Us

Mystic Seaport Museum attracts a variety of audiences-whether you are planning a fall
foliage getaway for two or a family summer vacation. Whether you explore the
Museum from the deck of a historic vessel, walk through our seaport village, or explore an indoor exhibition, you will discover why Mystic Seaport Museum is the nation's leading maritime museum.

Get out on the water from May to October and explore the historic Mystic River. Go for a cruise or set your own course as you captain a rental rowboat orsailboat from the boathouse. Discover historic vessels like the Joseph Conrad and the L.A. Dunton. See the Charles W. Morgan, the last wooden whaleship in the world. Stroll through the recreated seafaring village, where you can stop by our working Shipsmith, Cooper, and Shipcarver's shops and see how these businesses were run in the 19th century. Explore
our many world-class exhibitions. Our youngest sailors canclimb aboard our fleet of wooden boats, swab the deck in the Children's Museum and discover stars under the Planetarium dome. Learn about the Museum's special events year-round at www.mysticseaport.org.
