We liked the submarine and the USS Constellation the best. We didn't take the narrated tour, but were able to take good pictures since there were very few people. Highly recommend for kids, especially boys.

The best things about Baltimore are the people. During my visit to your great city the most impressive attraction I found was the kindness of the locals. So good to see a real smile. Thanks for that. Oh ya the crab cakes are great as well!!

We had a fun time going on all of the ships. It was amazing on the height in these ships. Would recommend to friends to visit.

It is so interesting to see where the Star-Spangled Banner was inspired, and seeing the old wooden ships takes you back to the time when it was written. Very neat Inner Harbor!

Only issue we had was one ship was closed and we weren't told that earlier when we bought tickets. Great walking history ships! Loved each one.

Self-guided tour with audio stations. It was interesting to look back at history and marvel at how things were done prior to the industrial revolution. Amazing how far we've come.

If you are into history, this is worth the trip. USS Constellation is well done, with free recorded tour and a real view of 1800's life aboard. We started at the other side of the harbor on the Taney, the last vessel surviving from Pearl Harbor. Decent historical information and a sense of life aboard. The sub, USS Torsk, is... More

Check the CAA (or AAA) discount - we got two people, all four ships .. for $20! It is always very cool to get to go on ships in harbor cities. This was a great way to spend an hour or two downtown and get some cool photos. The USS Constellation was pretty cool - you can go up to... More

I wished to see the historic ships first of all. But I was disappointed to see the biggest, USS Constellation, which looks very ugly. The submarine and the sailboat look fine. You better go to Greenwich, London and visit Cutty Sark!

Several attractions including the USS Constellation (1860's sailing vessel), the USS Torsk (Tench class fleet diesel submarine), the US Coast Guard Cutter Taney, and the Lightship Chesapeake. All of these need some time to visit. Plan on spending a day if you wish to see all of them and buy your admission ticket accordingly.
