Mystic Seaport
Mystic, CT

Mystic Seaport – The Museum of America and the Sea – is the nation’s leading maritime museum. Located in Mystic, Connecticut, the Museum spans 19 public acres along the historic Mystic River.

Mystic Seaport is open year-round and includes three major components for visitors: a re-created 19th-century coastal village with historic tall ships, a working preservation shipyard and formal exhibit galleries. It is also home to a planetarium. Additionally, the Museum has an unparalleled Collections Research Center, which contains one of the most extensive collections of maritime photography, historic vessels, film and ships plans.

Mystic Seaport is home to four National Historic Landmark vessels, including the Charles W. Morgan, the last wooden whale ship in the world. Built in 1841, she stands as the crown jewel of the Museum’s collection.
