Beautiful ships

Of historic and aesthetic interest. There are very informative exhibits. The USCGC Taney is in the harbor as well, and you can go aboard.

I came here to baptize my cousin's twins and I really like this place, I would recommend it for people that love to see historic places. Not much into history but loved the scenery. I came here a long time ago, maybe 98.

You can select different packages for the time you have and your interest and different prices for each. We picked two the Submarine and the Constellation. What a great tour, very interesting. Be ready to go up and down steps and through hatches. Very informative and interesting.

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.

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

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.
