Like Colonial Williamsburg in Virginia, Mystic Seaport is a living history museum that teaches visitors about nautical life in the 1800s. Visitors can tour vintage sailing ships, historical trade shops, and other educational exhibits. Each June, the Mystic Seaport Sea Music Festival is held, which is the largest celebration of sea shanties in the nation.
