Setting — Nineteen waterfront acres, nearly 50 historic buildings and more than 500 vessels comprise this extraordinary museum - a living paean to 19th century New England seafaring life and all that has come after. Tall ships, classic wooden boats, fully furnished houses, a planetarium, large nautical gift shop, research library -- all artfully conceived and beautifully executed. Founded 1929, in the midst of the depression, Mystic Seaport is now the largest and most comprehensive maritime museum in North America. For anyone with a passion for "messing about with boats", this is worth a special trip.

Marina Notes — *Rates: $3.50/ft. "Family Plus" Members $2.75/ft. "Sustaining Plus" Members $2.75/ft. & second night free once a season. Advance reservations required with $50 deposit - refundable up to 24hrs. in advance. (Reservations held until 5:15 pm; bridge opening without prior arrangement). Check-in after 12:40 bridge opening; check-out before 1:15. Monitors Ch.68 8am-7pm July-Labor Day, and phones 9am-4pm Mon-Fri, 9am-5pm daily Jul-Aug. Dockmaster's office at head of Dunton & Sabino Dock. Mystic Trolley to shopping, restaurants, attractions, Amtrak, etc. Dinghy to Downtown Mystic Park.

Notable — A wonderful experience! Dockage includes admission for the whole crew (usually $25) and "after hours" the place is yours. Bell rating based on uniqueness of experience, not the facilities. Museum members have access to the Members building with lounge, free beverages, quiet restrooms, shop and boat rental discounts, etc. Classes for kids, families, adults. Maritime scholars and buffs will find an extraordinary research collection and graduate-level courses. Demonstrations, kids' programs, exhibits - all day. Special events all year.
