Climb Aboard Our Historic Vessels and Enter Another Era

Even the most confirmed landlubbers will be transformed into savvy sea dogs after boarding one of the many historic vessels at Mystic Seaport Museum. From the world’s last surviving wooden whaleship in the world, the Charles W. Morgan, to the last example of early 20th-century New England fishing vessels, the L.A. Dunton, these vessels offer a glimpse of long-past seafaring days.

The watercraft collection at Mystic Seaport Museum is the largest of its kind in the United States and includes four National Historic Landmark vessels: the Charles W. Morgan, L. A. Dunton, Sabino and Emma C. Berry. Come see and climb aboard our collection of historic vessels that span both time and culture.
