This evening lantern light tour misses the mark completely. This may be a 1700’s village but safety should be more important than atmosphere. Walking on the tour is dark & hazardous. We were so busy trying to see where we were walking that we never...More

There is so much to see here and if you like the sea, boats, ships and history in general Mystic Seaport is a great destination. To fully appreciate this open air museum, allow for 6 hours.

We enjoyed our visit to the seaport. Great history! We went on my husbands birthday and his admission was free; it was a nice savings! It is a great experience especially for families. There is enough to see that you could spend the whole day.

I had visited years ago, and couldn't wait to come back. Educational, fun, interactive and great for families. We brought our dog along. While he wasn't allowed in the buildings, he walked with us and they are welcomed on the grounds. This is living history!...More
