Ever wondered what is behind the ropes at Mystic Seaport Museum’s Preservation Shipyard?  Or what is inside the Watercraft Hall- open to the public only a few times per year?  Looking for a special gift for that someone who has everything?  Join us this fall and winter for small group guided tours of the Shipyard’s machine shop, rigging loft, and interact with our skilled shipwrights as they describe the work they are doing on this winter’s projects, including Mayflower IIPilotSherman ZwickerStar, and more.

Following the shipyard tour join a guided tour of the Museum’s Watercraft Collection.  Housed in nearly an acre of the Rossi Mill building, the Watercraft collection is one of the largest and most diverse collections of its kind in the world.  Including over 460 boats- mostly wood, and mostly American- going back to 1824, the collection includes vessels owned by a former president, prototypes of famous designs, and every outboard engine that you can imagine.
