At Mystic Seaport, our “Moby-Dick” Marathon is a communal event that relies upon visitor participation to keep the words flowing and the pages turning through all 24 hours and 133 chapters. Participants are invited to read a chapter or two (or more!), or just sit back to listen, simply allowing the beauty of the language to flow over you. Over the course of the marathon, other surprises await, including an actor portraying Herman Melville, the theatrical staging of certain chapters by our TaleMakers theatre troupe, and cake!

Participation in the “Moby-Dick” Marathon is free with museum admission or membership.

Advance registration is required to stay overnight due to limited capacity on the Charles W. Morgan. Please call 860.572.5331 to register.
