Aside from the chirping and nesting birds, the budding flowers and blossoming trees, at Mystic Seaport there is another sure sign that spring is here. The busses are coming!
As the school year winds down, school trips are the order of the day. Beginning May 4 and running through June 10, schools throughout Connecticut and beyond have scheduled visits to Mystic Seaport. Do the math: 45 kids per bus, multiplied by the number of busses – up to six on any given day – that’s a lot of excited school kids plus chaperones arriving on Museum grounds!
But not to worry!
Mystic Seaport’s 19 acres gobble up groups of this size without hampering the enjoyment of the casual visitor. Actually, the sound of children laughing and enjoying themselves can be infectious and perhaps even nostalgic. When’s the last time you attempted balancing on stilts or trying to keep a hoop rolling with a stick? It’s fun to watch, even if you don’t participate. Also, hearing a chorus of children singing whaling songs and sea chanteys is a truly unique Mystic Seaport experience. You might just want to join in.
Whether you come in your own “bus” or with a busload of school children, your visit to the Museum of America and the Sea will be a memorable experience, guaranteed.
