Just spent the day doing the full 4 ships. Yes, be sure to use your AAA card to get a BOGO. Yes, there is a lot of walking, climbing, head bumping, and shin knocking. Yes, very few areas are heated or cooled. Go anyway. Each ship has more of a story than you might first realize. You will walk away... More

Went aboard the USS Constellation a couple years ago and loved it. Was amazed that the crew and captain traveled that way. The captain had it pretty good. Really takes you back in History.

As it was warm out I followed a fellow trip advisor's advice and went early. These ships are not air conditioned. The sub was interesting but very tight space with lots of climbing of ladders and getting through passage ways. The Constellation the oldest ship had the most room but also a lot of ladders to climb. Coast guard ship... More

Historic ships in Baltimore are great places to go especially if you are into maritime history and learning what life was like on some of these ships. Be aware though, the tickets are a bit pricey

This was a treat to see older ships up close. A guided tour would be a wonderful addition. Overall, well worth visiting!

I took my two grandsons to visit the four ships berthed at the Inner Harbor. We enjoyed the experience, WW-ll era Coast Guard Cutter & submarine, The Chesapeake lightship and the frigate "Constellation" were all available for touring. Plan to spend of few hours it is well worth the time.

We toured the Constellation only. This wonderful ship deserves more TLC and respect! There are no tour guides, nor is there a welcoming feeling when you enter or purchase tickets. I'm glad I went, because the history of this ship is amazing! However, I think a field trip to Boston to see how they display their ships would be in... More

This is a MUST for any admirer of ship-building and naval ships. This is a real treat to visit in Baltimore and plan plenty of time to take in all of the nooks and crannies of each of the ships. Simply wonderful.

So interesting to see the ships! Made our trip to walk around the Inner Harbor so much more fun... Went on the last day the ships were in (Monday), so not as many people. Lines were shorter for the tours.
