We only toured USS Constellation.

Very cool outdoor museum for people like me who love military history. The sub is amazing it has so many holes, pipes, openings you had to have guts to submerge that sucker. My fav is the Coast Guard ship. Beautiful hull, great history.

I had a great time exploring all 4 ships and the seven foot lighthouse. They're all within a couple blocks of each other, so be prepared to do some walking. The Constellation was the most fun, there were lots of people in period uniforms, they played fife and drum music, interactive demonstrations and there was a free audio tour available.... More

A great historic adventure and very interesting visits to each ship. So much information in each ship. Spent hours there. You could spend hours on each ship if you read all the information in each ship. Pleasantly surprised that it was so much fun

We loved the living history. The tall ships and the submarine were wonderful. The shopping and restaurants were also wonderful.

A fantastic time looking at all the old ships. Several good places to eat and several places to stay although DON'T stay at the Royal Sonesta hotel. Total ripoff

We did not have enough time to really enjoy Fells Point, but we would go back. If you enjoy trying different restaurants or drinking beer, this is the place to visit, and the water taxi service is wonderful. Buy the all day pass, and go anywhere in Baltimore.
