Search Mystic Connecticut

Occupies the site of three of the five shipyards that once lined the Mystic River and collectively launched 600 vessels between 1784 and 1919, a record unmatched by any other comparably-sized community in the United States. Founded in 1929, Mystic Seaport today is guardian of the largest collections of boats and sea-related photography in the world. Take part in all three of Mystic Seaports experiences -- the village, exhibit galleries and a unique shipyard where the nearly lost art of wooden shipbuilding endures. Open daily, year-round except Christmas Day.
