Yep, its here, the Torsk (and one of only 2 Tench class subs still in the US). Want to see the last surviving warship... More

I really enjoyed the ships and submarine. Very informative. I'll never look at the life on a ship the same again. I was so impressed with how original everything is. Very well preserved ships that helped me see that life must be hard out at sea. Especially years ago.

I love the view of the Historic ships. Able to walk on and observe. Definitely an experience.... I was amazed by the size of the ships. I can't wait to go back and take my daughter so she can share in the experience.

My husband and I did the two ship tour and we both enjoyed it thoroughly. Please keep in mind that if you choose to tour the submarine, the spaces onboard are a tight squeeze at times.

Great experience to visit a historic ship. All this ships at the Inner Harbor are worth the visit. But we enjoyed the Taney the best.

Went on board with my brother in law on a freezing cold day but warmed up by joining in the hands on demonstration of rope handling on deck (line handling but that's another story!) All good fun!

This is, hands down, the best value on the inner harbor. Bring your AAA card and get in for half price. Two people - $20.00 and you have access to four historic vessels permanently moored here. Lots of climbing and tight areas, especially the submarine, but all worth it. Photos OK, so I had a great time.

The great thing about this attraction is you can choose to visit all the ships or just one and if you are on a 0$ budget, although you can't board the ships, you can view the ships from the outside since they are docked. The kids will get a thrill out of it being so close to the ships. If... More

You can feel the ship moving and seeing the lower floors is really amazing. Worth the small price of admission
