As a child, did your family or a relative have an attic that called out to you to explore its contents: perhaps trunks full of old things – pictures, keepsakes, clothing and toys stored away because they held too many precious and personal memories to dispose of them? My uncle’s and aunt’s attic was a fascinating place to me as a youngster.
I don’t think we ever outgrow our curiosity about places usually off-limits to us. That’s why I’m so eager to tell you about the guided tours Mystic Seaport is offering visitors.
Explore the Museum “Attic” takes you behind the scenes at the Collections Research Center. You will be amazed at the awesome treasures Mystic Seaport has there which cannot be displayed on a regular basis due to space and other limitations. When I took the tour, I was blown away by the extent and variety of the Museum’s collections and the history attached to them.
Tours are limited in size and are given at 12:45 p.m. Thursday through Sunday. Tour guides will meet visitors outside the Benjamin F. Packard ship cabin exhibit before the group heads across the street to the Collections Research Center.
Don’t miss this opportunity. You will love it!
