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.

We enjoyed seeing the Charles W. Morgan and helping the crew hoist up the small waling boats after their excellent demonstration. We also enjoyed the museum they had nearby telling the history of the Charles W. Morgan and of other whaling ships of the 1800's....More

It's a great opportunity to step back in time. The tour guides know a ton of information on the history of the boat as well. You get a chance to explore into the boat too.

Loved every part of the Seaport. The Charles Morgan is beautiful. The kids had a great time exploring this ship and the others at the Seaport. Hope to see her sail to Boston one day!

You can get a discount of about 4.00 per ticket if you buy them in the Olde Mistic Village.
Planning on being in the area the weekend of the festival. What is the typical temperature and do you have any changes in your leaves that early? Is it jacket weather? We are from the south and are use to hot temps.
