We were apprehensive about taking my grandchildren (5&7) to see the ships but they loved them! They really liked the Torsk and climbing through the hatches! It was a great day.

Is presently in drydock, which was disappointing. Other ships were interesting, but I'll have to come back to see the main focus.

Great opportunity to see different types of vessels used to support our country. Great for kids! Lots of climbing and stairs, so recommend for kids who can move around on their own or be carried.

I gather that the USS Constellation is in dry dock as I write this, but it was open and available for touring earlier in 2014 when I visited it. This is a piece of history *not* to be missed if you are in Baltimore, and you should take the time to poke around in it everywhere since the informational signs... More

Mind you, you are going to walk a lot, so go early or don't plan to many things. If you bring the... More

Which probably works for most visitors. The USS Constellation is in dry dock until Feb 2015. If you're planning a visit, I would suggest well after Feb to make sure you can see it.

My husband wanted to see the USS Constellation so he mapped out a 30 road trip. The ship is in "Dry Dock" and cannot be viewed! He was pretty sad but he did get to see the sub and the other ship at the pier. There are some shops & restaurants nearby to spend time at. We had trouble finding... More
