Educators Appreciation Day 2017

Mystic Seaport is now doing special programming for teachers in October instead of April, and for one day only so don’t miss it! This year’s Educators Appreciation Day is Saturday, October 21, 2017 from 9am-5pm, rain or shine. All teachers, administrators, instructional assistants, homeschoolers, afterschool professionals, and their families (up to four people total with teacher ID) will receive free admission to Mystic Seaport.

The Viking ship Draken Harald Harfagre is docked at Mystic Seaport for a limited time, and educators will be able to learn about our new joint tour with Draken for this year only. Don’t miss this special opportunity to explore the Museum, learn more about our educational programs, participate in special activities for educators and their families, and find connections that link your classroom with ours. Education Department staff will be on hand to discuss program offerings and answer questions.
