Much of our notion of whaling comes from tall tales, books, and movies – though the truth is just as grand. Mystic Seaport’s new exhibit “Voyaging in the Wake of the Whalers” follows our amazing whaling history, from the 1841 launch of the whaleship Charles W. Morgan through her historic voyage in 2014.

The Mystic River was once home to more than two dozen shipbuilding enterprises, and today is known as the home of Mystic Seaport, the Museum of America and the Sea. A glimpse of life along the river is
afforded by this new video.

For a boater, every day on the water is fun – but some trips are truly something special. No matter how you begin your trip to Mystic Seaport, when you come by boat you experience the Museum in a very special way. http://stories.mysticseaport.org/

For centuries, sailors ventured out with little knowledge of where they were or which direction they were heading. Mystic Seaport’s new exhibit “Ships, Clocks & Stars: The Quest For Longitude” tells the story of an unlikely hero – a clockmaker, and a timepiece so precise it changed seafaring navigation forever.

The Discovery Barn “Force and Motion at Sea” exhibit at Mystic Seaport is one of the most interactive, hands-on learning centers you’ll find. By translating complex mechanical ideas into simplified user-assisted lessons, kids (and adults) can have fun and appreciate the world differently.

See how the hundreds of volunteers help the staff keep Mystic Seaport running. From scraping and painting the hull of the CHARLES W. MORGAN, to planting begonias and marigolds, to tracking the million photographs in the Rosenfeld Collection. There is no task too small – or large – that the dedicated volunteers won’t tackle. http://bit.ly/1JK0xx8

It was hard to leave. It was such a fun thing to re-experience in adulthood. I had first gone as a kid on a school field trip. Still a great spot to visit, and perfect for the whole family.

I honestly love the place, but I ordered tickets online to give to someone as a gift, but I accidentally deleted the email with the tickets. I've tried numerous times to contact them but they refuse to answer when they hear what I'm calling for, and won't respond to my emails. I understand it was my fault, but the customer service here is absolutely horrible and disrespectful.

We love bringing and our grandchildren love going to the Museum of America and the Sea! This year our crew numbered a bakers dozen for the Caroling!

Fun way to spend an afternoon. Great for adults, young kids might get bored. Our two year old got bored after an hour or so, but luckily they have a house full of toys and puzzles and books for kids, so we switched off watching him and looking at exhibits.

Beautiful, fun, interesting. Awesome place to go. Staff is incredibly friendly and knowledgable. Grounds are impeccably clean. Have fun, build a boat, take a sailboat cruise, see everhthing, buy the picnic bag. I use the bag constantly, especially on motorcycle trips. It has everything, it's sturdy and keeps the food cold. Adult tee shirts run big, I got mine in the girls section. I'd go again just for the relaxation and enjoyment.

Get in touch with America's Sea Going past at this wonderful re creation of a 19th Century fishing village . Great for adults and kids alike. You will not spend a more pleasant and Educational day. A wonderful staff of volunteers are very helpful and informative. I loved this place. The entire Mystic Area is a great place to spend a weekend or longer.

We love this place. Always a blast and the kids love the interactive exhibits. My only negative was a rude employee but it doesn't affect my overall opinion.

We went 2yrs ago and we hated to leave. It's such a cozy place there. Went in September 15 and weather was great. A little windy with a slight nip in the air. I could live there
