Mystic Seaport, founded in 1929, is a recreated coastal village with historic tall ships at anchor and a working historical shipyard.  This seafaring village features living history shops and 19th century craftsmen, ranging from coopersmiths and printers to sailmakers and riggers.  The village's historic buildings were moved here from other New England locations.  There are also maritime galleries and exhibitions as well as a planetarium, which has programs about celestial navigation.  Throughout the seasons, there are special programs and hands-on workshops, such as youth sailing camps.

Mystic offers boats that can be explored, sailed on, or piloted.  There is dining and shopping on-site, as well as nearby accommodations.
