We want to hear your stories

For nearly a century, Mystic Seaport Museum has been part of the community. Generations of families have walked the grounds, climbed aboard the  vessels, and enjoyed the special exhibits. By virtue of our mission as a museum, we are a repository of memories from times long past. We curate and share these memories through our living exhibits, but it is the memories our  visitors create that are the most important. Those are memories we carry all  their lives. We want to hear and share your memories of the Museum. We hope you will take a moment and tell us what you remember and cherish most about the Museum. Tell us the discoveries you made, friends you met, hours you passed and….memories you made and still keep today!
