Mystic Seaport Museum Reviews
Mystic Seaport in general is a must-see each time you visit Mystic. We miss living so close by. It's such a great place to explore! more »
Mystic Seaport is more than a museum. This is a living and working ‘village’ that is preserving the craft of building and repairing wooden boats as well as educating the public about live in the 1870-... more »
We had a really great time vacationing in Connecticut and visiting the Mystic Seaport Museum that is like no other I've ever been to. There was lots of history on old boats and how people would go out to sea to catch whales. I enjoyed the shops as well and purchased a nice shawl among other items such as souvenirs.
This place is absolutely spectacular. If you enjoy history which is being authentically preserved pertaining to the Sea there is nothing quite like it. Much less the shipyard where they're currently restoring Mayflower II. It's all very impressive if you like this kind of stuff...... Although it's super cold in the winter
