It was a cold day and we were walking around the pretty Baltimore waterfront area when we decided to look at the sub and the lightship. We were told the USS Constellation was in dry dock. The ship and sub were Ok. The admission for a family of 4 was a little steep for what it was.

We went through the light ship and submarine. While there were different plaques and signs to read it would have been more interesting to have a more guided tour instead of a self-guided tour. There was no one to ask questions of in the submarine.

The Constitution is not in the harbor right now, so they are running a special 3 ship tour for the price of 2. The submarine is a must see. Self guided tours, takes about 2 hours.

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.

An amazing tour not only educational but an incredible experience to be on the ships that took part in these historical events. So here is my tribute to those heroes who served for us. Check out the video and check out the links to learn more about these ships. Special thanks to my buddies for putting up with my gear... More

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.
