Mystic Seaport in Mystic, Connecticut, is a living history museum that preserves and celebrates America's seafaring heritage. From historic ships to maritime art exhibits to a re-created 19th century coastal village, the multi-faceted attraction provides visitors with a variety of experiences and an opportunity to truly appreciate the risks and rewards inherent in the conquest of the seas.

This virtual photo tour will show you the sights and scenes that have made Mystic Seaport a popular New England attraction for 75 years. The 17-acre seaport, located on the banks of the Mystic River, is a must-visit destination for anyone with an interest in history, sailing, shipbuilding or the arts. It's also the only place in Connecticut where you can buy a beer for 5 cents, but we'll get to that.

Mystic Seaport is open daily year-round except Christmas Day. For current hours, directions, special events and exhibits and other information on visiting America's preeminent maritime museum, call 860-572-5315 or toll free, 888-973-2767, or visit the Mystic Seaport Web site.
