Mystic Seaport

Walk the grounds of Mystic Seaport with your leashed pet and explore the museum's shipyard, nineteenth-century village re-creation, and nine gardens or enjoy a stroll along the river. Leashed pets are welcome on the museum grounds, although they are not permitted in any buildings or museum vessels. Rent a rowboat or sailboat to spend an hour exploring the Mystic River in a traditional small craft! Choose one of more than a dozen boats that vary in capacity from 2 to 5 people (plus a dog!). Boathouse staff will set you up with life jackets, oars, and other gear. Pricing for boat rentals vary. Visit Website

    Free re-entry

    great but I recommend that you go into the museums and ships then come back later to enjoy the area since you get free re- entry

    Tourist trap

    Pets technically allowed, but not on vessels or exhibits or in buildings. At a cost of $25/person this was a waste for me. Geared for 2 legged pets (aka kids).

    A Good Visit

    Enjoyed a beautiful day. Dogs are welcome throughout the seaport and at all the outdoor dining spots. Lots and soft grass and shady trees to lounge under. We had a great time.

    What a good day

    We really enjoyed our stroll through the Mystic Seaport today. It was great to be able to bring our dog, staff were very welcoming. We just had to skip the inside exhibits. Even had a great lunch under the trees at one of their restaurants that allows you to have your dog at the table.
