Mystic Seaport visit during the 2019 NRG conference

Recommended Posts

The 2019 NRG conference is in New Bedford Whaling Museum this year and it looks like it is going to be a great one.  I am really looking forward to it.  It seems that Mystic Seaport is only 60ish miles away.  I would like to visit it as well when I am up there.  Was planning on getting over there on Sunday after the conference.  Looks like the hours are 9a to 5p everyday.  

 

I was was wondering if you can “see it all” in that amount of time or is it something needing another day or will I need to pick and choose which parts to see?  There was just another forum topic on the rope walk that is there that apparently is not marked too well and seems very interesting.  Anyone have any other “must see” items?

Mike:

As a NRG donor member, don't forget to use your NRG membership card along with your CAMM pass to get free admission to the museum.

Can't answer the question about seeing it all in one day but there are loads of members here who can tell you.

Council of American Maritime Museums website here.  The pass allows you to enter without the fee.  

 

Now I just have to find mine.  I haven't used it in a few months.

I'm making a trip to Manchester NH in another week or so. My daughter and son-in-law are going to take me for some tours. Wow, there is so much to see up in this part of the country. Can't wait to visit some of these places.

CAMM = Council of American Maritime Museums.  The NRG is a CAMM member.  NRG members who join at levels of $100 and up get a CAMM card  which gives them free admittance to all CAMM member museums for the year.  This can save members a lot of money if they frequent maritime museums.

About the NRG

If you enjoy building ship models that are historically accurate as well as beautiful, then The Nautical Research Guild (NRG) is just right for you.

The Guild is a non-profit educational organization whose mission is to “Advance Ship Modeling Through Research”. We provide support to our members in their efforts to raise the quality of their model ships.

The Nautical Research Guild has published our world-renowned quarterly magazine, The Nautical Research Journal, since 1955. The pages of the Journal are full of articles by accomplished ship modelers who show you how they create those exquisite details on their models, and by maritime historians who show you the correct details to build. The Journal is available in both print and digital editions. Go to the NRG web site (www.thenrg.org) to download a complimentary digital copy of the Journal. The NRG also publishes plan sets, books and compilations of back issues of the Journal and the former Ships in Scale and Model Ship Builder magazines.
