    General Village information

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: In the summer, there are often long lines waiting to buy tickets. We stopped at the Information Center before we got to Mystic, and found that we could buy discounted tickets there and then could walk right in without standing in line.

    You can also get tickets on-line. The combination ticket to the Seaport and the Aquarium can only be bought on line.

    Entering Mystic Seaport

    by Pawtuxet Updated Jan 5, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: There are several attractions and areas to visit around Mystic. My tips about the Mystic Seaport involve the tourist area which requires a ticket for admission to the entire recreated village where you explore the whaling ship, seaport trades, homes, businesses, museums. The entrance is pictured here. There is ample parking across the street and there are plenty of good signs to direct you. This village can take a full day to explore fully. Well worth the visit as I point out in my Must See tips.

    Climb aboard a whaler

    by Pawtuxet Updated Jan 5, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: The guides at Mystic Seaport are really knowledgeable and helpful. They talk about how the men processed the whales at sea and brought back only the parts they knew would be useful. Touring the quarters below deck was fascinating. The ship is outfitted with kitchen, bedroom, and trade accessories. The men must have been awfully small to fit in the little beds that were provided.
