Morgan, American’s oldest commercial ship and the last wooden whaleship in the world. Mystic Seaport ranges across 17-acres on the Mystic Peninsula with 50 buildings and hands-on attractions, including, sailing classes, a million seafaring artifacts and historical photographs, Sabino, the oldest coal-powered steamboat in America, and a 250 year tradition of celebrating all things of the sea. From whaling history to wood carving and cooperage, Mystic Seaport is the place for those who love the sea and maritime history.
A collection that exceeds 2 million pieces, the collection housed at Mystic Seaport is second to none for its breadth and scope. From photographs, to ship models to nautical instruments of every sort, one visit to Mystic Seaport barely scratches the surface of all that it has to offer.
