The Museum's grounds cover 19 acres on the Mystic River in Mystic, CT and include a recreated 19th-century coastal village, a working shipyard, formal exhibit halls, and state-of-the-art artifact storage facilities. Mystic Seaport is located one mile south of Exit 90 off I-95 in Mystic, CT.

This museum is very interesting in that it includes a working shipyard. During our visit they were in the process of refurbishing the Mayflower II. We were there in the off season and found it worth the visit in spite of a few of the...More

Lovely seaside walk, with a museum and a cute shop. I was on the lookout for picture worthy stops on our road trip and this was definitely at the top of the list.
