Official Launch

MAYFLOWER’s Official Launch and Re-Commissioning

When: September 7, 2019

Where: Mystic Seaport Museum

Free with Mystic Seaport Museum admission (standing); limited VIP seated tickets will be available closer to the event date.

Following a three-year restoration at Mystic Seaport Museum’s Henry B. duPont Preservation Shipyard, Plimoth Plantation is proud to present the official launch and re-commissioning of Mayflower. Our engaging program of speakers and entertainment will set the stage for the ceremonial christening before the ship is lowered into the Mystic River for the first time since her restoration began in November 2016! 

In the weeks following the launch, the remaining stages of the restoration will be completed and the ship will be readied to sail into the spotlight of the 400th Commemoration of America’s Founding Story in spring 2020.

Thank you to our generous sponsors!
