Mystic Seaport Museum

Do you know that Mystic Seaport Museum can bring many of these experiences directly to your classroom?

To visit Mystic Seaport Museum is definitely exciting. There are boats,historic buildings,and interesting exhibits to explore. The museum is educational and students love it. While it is definitely worth bringing your students to Mystic Seaport, we know it is also challenging to fit in and that money for field trips is tight.

Out reach programs are a time and cost-effective way to introduce your students to the content and flavor of Mystic Seaport Museum.

A visit to your school by a museum professional can enhance or take the place of a field trip, depending on needs and budget. And, if you’re too far away for us to travel to you,we have a solution for that, too—new virtual programs!
