Fodor's Review

The world's largest maritime museum, Mystic Seaport encompasses 37 acres of indoor and outdoor exhibits with more than 1 million artifacts that provide a fascinating look at the area's rich shipbuilding and seafaring heritage. In the narrow streets and historic homes and buildings (some moved here from other sites), craftspeople give demonstrations of open-hearth cooking, weaving, and other skills of yesteryear. The museum's more than 500 vessels include the Charles

W. Morgan, the last remaining wooden whaling ship afloat, and the 1882 training ship Joseph Conrad. You can climb aboard for a look or for sail-setting demonstrations and reenactments of whale hunts. Children under five are admitted free.
