Your pass gets you a 2 day visit along this beautiful and fascinatingly educational seaport. The staff is friendly, helpful, informative and dressed to the period as they take you back in time to the days of seafare living.

A wonderfully restored sailing vessel in the Mystic Seaport Museum. A fine example of New Englands whaling history.

The Charles W Morgan is the only seawothy wooden whaling ship left and has been brought back to life to give modern people the chance to marvel at the bravery of the sailors who manned it, a truly moving experience.

The number and variety of ships here is extraordinary! This is one of the best. There are many opportunities to check ships of many eras that have been restored. Enjoy!

Took our grandchildren here and they were fascinated by the boat as well as the accompanying model village. It was a nearby "Williamsburg, Va." and not as long to get there from NYC. Nice demonstrations and a very reasonable cafeteria for lunch.Great place for children.

We boarded the Charles W. Morgan at Mystic Seaport, and immediately connected with its majestic stature as a whaling vessel ... taken back in time when the seafarers walked the decks and worked the whales for their precious blubber, etc.

Was worth the visit. Interesting and educational. I love visiting historical sites. We had visited during the ship's restoration several years ago.

The Charles W. Morgan will be at the Seaport at the wharf for the next several years. There is no sea journey planned.
