Cabinet of Curiosities

Every year, thousands of people visit Mystic Seaport Museum to explore the world-class exhibits, climb aboard tall ships, and learn about life on sea and shore.

But many people are unaware of the vast collections of artifacts, documents, photography, rare books, boats, ship’s plans and film and video at the Museum!

This program will take you on an adventure behind locked doors into the “vault” that stores the Museum collections. Within the collection are many unusual and surprising artifacts.

Virtual visitors will have a chance to see everything from unusual animal parts and strange furniture, to a curious secret ingredient used in some perfumes.

For students in 6th grade and up. Adults are also welcome. Registration is required to receive the Zoom link.
