Mystic, CT

While in Mystic we visited the Mystic Seaport Museum.  It is a huge museum with a lot of wonderful kids activities that make it easy to see the museum and enjoy it as adults also.
One of the kids favorite activities was watching how the whaling ship actually harpoons whales from a rather small dinghy.  Very scary. 
Another was the navigational quest.  We found clues with a GPS, spyglass, and a compass.  We spent two full days there and still feel like we could go back for more.
