Raise your hands if you believe Mystic Seaport is only a warm weather destination. WRONG! Granted, it’s a different experience once your flip-flops and t-shirts are traded for boots, scarves and heavy coats, but the Museum is a special year-round place.
There are plenty of things for you to ooh and ah about – besides the spectacular setting overlooking the historic Mystic River. For many of you, Mystic Seaport is just a short trip from where you live.
Over the next few weeks, we’ll take you through our formal exhibits and galleries. (All are heated, an added perk on a cold blustery day.)
This winter, there’s no need to suffer cabin fever. Come see us. You and the family can get a taste of maritime history, marvel at the restoration of the Charles W. Morgan whaling ship, stroll the now quiet village streets (buildings are closed for the season, but will re-open in early Spring), and perhaps stop in for a hot drink and a cup of chowder at the Seamen’s Inne, or maybe sample a pastry or a piece of fudge at the Bake Shop.
Sound good? You betcha! Check out the daily happenings at our website: www.mysticseaport.org and pick your day to visit. The welcome mat is out.
