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!

The ships are beautful and again a Must See. The Inner Harbor reminds me of South Street Seaport in New York and the Ships are a Plus that puts a Cherry on Top!!

There are 4 historic ships and you can buy tickets to tour 1, 2, and 3 ships of your choice or all four. I toured the USS Constellation. This lovingly restored sloop-of-war is staffed by friendly, welcoming, and super-knowledgeable members of the US Coast Guard. You can use an audio tour or explore on your own. Throughout the ship, information... More

My boyfriend and I went on these tours for a time killer and had a blast! Constellation was definitely my favorite, with them shooting off a cannon! It was awesome! Just be careful because of the tight spaces and steep stairs (can't help those though) but other than that it was very informative and interesting!

This was a good tour of several ships and a submarine. All of the ships were in need of some amount of upkeep, but the history of these ships was all very interesting. It was worth the effort to visit if you are a fan of military ships.

Family friendly, education, a lot of fun. The ships are big and beautiful and the location is great as it is right in the Inner Harbor with many other options for food, drink, shopping and etc. nearby.

The kids had a great time looking at all the old ships in the harbor. It was something like $10 per person to tour the ship. No thanks, we will just look! :)

Went on the Constellation and Torsk exhibits and they are always great little diversions. On a hot day it can be a little warm on both of the boats as there is not a lot of air movement. The constellation has rotating displays like the firing the cannons, muskets, etc. Be sure to time it correctly so you can view... More

If you're have the "sea legs" of a pro or are a landlubber like me, I recommend a trip to Baltimore's Inner Harbor to view the historic ships! Sailboats, schooners, tugboats, pirate ships are all available to view and sometimes board. A great way to enjoy a relaxing day in Baltimore!
