There is one admission price that covers all the sights except the boat rides (the stand still boats are no charge to board). You can go to have an active day, an educational day, or a lazy by-the-water day. We went in a family group of ten, ages 1.5 to senior citizen and EVERYONE found something they liked. We plan to go back to see the planetarium and some of the buildings we missed, since it's not a far drive from home.

At Voyages: Stories of America and The Sea, the whole family will journey to the past as they learn about the fascinating stories of the sea. At the Preservation Shipyard, you’ll get to look down over real craftspeople as they construct the crafts of yesterday and carry on the fine art on shipbuilding. What a treat for any boat builder or boater to witness.
At Coming to America, interactive events and activities explore immigration to the U.S. and how it affected those that came here.
It’s a Williamsburg-type atmosphere as costumed docents portray people from the past—and explain it to those of us in the present in a meaningful way that we can identify with. From the artistic scrimshaw and ship’s ceremonies, to rigging and setting sails, the world of the sea, carefully explained in fascinating ways, to bring it’s romantic and dramatic history alive. This is such an enjoyable, don’t spoil it by letting the kids know that it’s educational too.
Plan to spend the day here and dine at the Spouter Tavern, the Seamen’s Inn Restaurant & Pub or Galley Restaurant on the Village Green to really get the flavor of the sea.
