Artifacts, Documents, and Boats!

Behind the Scenes in the Museum Collections

Museum visitors might be surprised to learn that what they see in public exhibitions only represents a small percentage of that museum's collection as a whole.  Mystic Seaport is no exception, so this program is a chance for teachers to see what we keep, safely stored in our vaults -- from our vast collection of scrimshaw to over five hundred small vessels.  Join us for this rare, behind-the-scenes look at some of the major collections of Mystic Seaport:  artifacts, documents and watercraft.  Space is limited for this program.
