Located about 10 miles east of New London on the Connecticut coastline, Mystic Seaport is the oldest maratime museum in the United States. It features a recreated 19th Century seaside village, much in the style of Colonial Williamsburg and Plimouth Plantation. Mystic is also the home to several tall ships, including 4 which are US National Landmarks. There are museum-style exhibits here as well which change periodically, but all tell stories of the history of America and the sea. The Seaport also serves as a research center for American maratime historians who can utilize its archives of ships' logs and other resources. It is a popular destination for families and school outings, as there are so many fun and educational things to do and check out here.
