If you enjoy the sea, in any capacity, or if you own or wish you owned a boat, come see "the big girls" in Baltimore. You'll be amazed at the living conditions aboard these historic vessels. Baltimore seems to be a yachtsman's magnet and on any given summer day, there are hundreds of small, medium and large yachts in the... More

We enjoyed the three ships very much. It would have been nice to have more, and more organised, information about them.

So crowded! We waited in line for an hour and still didn't get on the ships. Maybe it was the holiday, but wow, not worth the parking cost, then the walk through crowds, the heat, the pushing, shoving and all-around mood - for what didn't look like very much - at least from the distance.

The ships were interesting to visit and all were unique in their history. USS Constellation - This one has the most room to walk around on the decks. A few of the ceilings on the lower decks are tight, but very doable. If you time it right, you can also be part of shooting off the cannon. They ask for... More

While visiting Baltimore for the weekend recently we decided to check out the historic ships in the inner harbor area. Admission was $14.00 for adults and $6.00 for the kids. Constellation is not currently there but the other three are very interesting on their own. My kids especially enjoyed the submarine "Torsk" although I wouldn't recommend it for anyone of... More

We spent 2 hours touring two ships and the sub. All three were very interesting. Would recommend visiting the Chesapeake and submarine before the coast guard ship, which is the largest and contains the most information. Hit or miss with the knowledge base of the employees.

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.
