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.
