NEPSA 2023: APRIL 20-22
Thursday welcome event:
MYSTIC SEAPORT TOUR
The welcome event for the 2023 Annual Meeting of the New England Political Science Association is
a private after-hours guided tour of Mystic Seaport Museum. Mystic Seaport Museum is a living history
museum which offers an authentic, one-of-a-kind view of America’s maritime heritage and tells the many
stories of how our lives connect to the sea. The vibrant 19-acre campus, right on the Mystic River, includes
a recreated New England seafaring village, four historic vessels, including the Charles W. Morgan (the last
wooden whaleship in the world), formal ever-changing exhibitions, and a renowned preservation shipyard.
We will meet at the north entrance to the Seaport, which is just over one mile from the hotel; tour-goers need
to arrange their own transportation. Our tour will depart PROMPTLY at 5:45 PM, so tour-goers are strongly
advised to get to the Seaport early. The tour will finish at approximately 7:00 PM.
Please be advised that you will be boarding the Charles W. Morgan as part of the tour, although it will not
be sailing out onto the water. Please also be advised that the tour will occur RAIN OR SHINE.
Please also be advised that tickets are now sold out.
