I bought the 4 ship ticket. It's pretty interesting to know about the ship, and also learn something about the U.S. history.

It was a breath of fresh air to tour multiple ships and learn a little history of them. We were able to take some really good pictures.

You get to enter subs and ships to explore there. Great variety to look at and alot of history to learn. Easy to get to and plenty of entertainment close by. Beautiful area and scenery.

We took our 2 boys on these boats they had a great time. Our favorite was the Constellation. We had a groupon that was a great value.

I intended to just tour the submarine, but ended up touring all 4, and found them all to be fascinating in their own way. If you don't have time for all 4, then choose the Constellation and the USS Torsk. The Constellation is a restoration of the last all-sail ship built for the Navy in 1854. You can explore all...

Touring the Submarine and the USS Constitution are really neat. Even kids will enjoy it, while learning about some US history. The inner harbor is a beautiful place to go, and the ships are not to be missed.

Worth the price of admission. Perhaps, not so suitable for young ones, but worth a try. History can be fun.

My husband, 10 year old son and I toured all 4 ships (teenage daughter wasn't interested). We thoroughly enjoyed seeing the boats and imagining what life must have been like living on them.

Spent a couple days in Baltimore and this is a must see. The submarine was our favorite, a lot of small and tights spaces to fit into, but if you don't mind that, its a cool experience being down inside a real submarine. All the boats were very nice, a lot of history to go along with all of them,... More

I liked the Constellation the most. The guided tour gave ore of the history and I liked that. We watched the large gun demo and found that interesting. All of the ships were so different. I also learned why the Chesapeake is a LIGHT ship. If you don't know go and find out!
