MYSTIC, CT - Mystic Seaport celebrates its reopening with free admission for children ages 17 and under when accompanied by a paying adult from February 15 to 23.

The Museum will kick off the year with Winter’s Aweigh, three days of special activities on Presidents’ Day Weekend beginning Saturday, February 15. Visitors can explore the Museum’s 19th-century seafaring village, historic vessels, and maritime exhibits, and take a horse-and-carriage ride.

Children can try their hand at an art project, stop by the Print Shop and create a vintage winter scene, or watch a Planetarium show. Other activities include toy boat building, story time in the Children’s Museum, music workshops, and a kids’-eye view of the 1841 whaleship Charles W. Morgan.

Back by popular demand, three breeds of winter working dogs will visit Mystic Seaport throughout the weekend. The dogs will demonstrate various winter work tasks and be available for petting from 10:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Malamutes will be on grounds Saturday, February 15; Newfoundlands will visit Sunday, February 16; and St. Bernards will be on Museum grounds Monday, February 17.

The children’s free admission offer continues through Sunday, February 23, during which time the Museum will be open 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day. The offer is not transferable and no other discounts apply.
