We spent 5 hours here. Enjoyed the special exhibits about the Vikings that just came to the museum. We loved going on the Whaling Ship, the Charles W. Morgan.

They have daily programs and you can help hoist a sail or hear a sea chanty etc. Pretty cool to see.

Solid restoration of this old whaling ship with a bunch of history attached! Pretty gruesome history but history none the less. You will enjoy touring the many compartments of this old ship and enjoying a glimpse back into history. Currently located in the Mystic Seaport!

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.

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