I am from Amsterdam and a big fan of everything nautical. Mystic has been on my wish list for many years but when i do come over then usually to Washington DC. I kept one day free this time March 4th and checked for options to go once again. It wold be a crazy long day but I do think i might do it anyway:
Leaving DC 3:15 am
Arriving Mystic 9:41 am
on Amtrak 165 Northeast Regional
Return i would need to make sure i catch the 4:35 pm to be back at Union station in DC at 11:30 pm.
Now the big question is will it be worth it of course, Essentially that leaves me about 6 hours. Is that enough for the museum? I know i know 14 hours train for 6 hours museum....but i just otherwise never get there.
