The last wooden whaling ship in the world. A true gem of our whaling history. Make a weekend of it with children and adults alike. Much to be seen at the Seaport Museum and then a visit to the Aquarium.

The last whaling ship. This was just restored recently. Located in mystic seaport the ship is open to tour. It is.a.beautiful vessel, and of course is full of history. Beware though, you might find a spirit or two, as it is known to be haunted.
