As a local Baltimore neighbor ... I have not been on the Constellation until today, and it was so worth the trip and the few dollars admission. My teens and I enjoyed it very much .. to see the different lifestyle, to learn of the history, and then to be able to see the cannon work was great fun. A... More

Cool historical coast guard ship (said to be the last survivor of Pearl Harbor). You get to walk through the ship and there are some informational videos inside as well that you can watch. For the kids, there's a few poster boards that feature "Soogie" the Jack Russell Terrier (she was an honorary coast guard back around world war 2)... More

The Inner Harbor area of Baltimore boasts many attractions... truly something to entertain everyone. However, this just might be my favorite! Imagine, exploring some of the best preserved ships in the country. You can touch, climb down ladders, squeeze through tunnels, an duck through doorways. But best of all, you can immerse yourself in great moments of our nation's history.... More

I love seafaring novels and this was very cool. I really liked that they had a self guided tour and didn't make you wait and wander around with everyone else. Didn't see the other three ships but I was satisfied.

My nine year old was captivated by the history shared by the staff and the inner workings of the Constellation. We only did the one ship but he explored every inch! The ship is conveniently located between the visitor's center and the Aquarium. Thought the price was reasonable however, if you have the time to visit the other ships, the... More

Our grandkids loved the ships. I have been on the tour several times and enjoy taking new comers on the ships. If you plan to take the water taxis anywhere, use the coupons they provide to get all ships for the price of one.

We bought the 4 ship package and they didn't bother to tell us one was closed. It was still a good deal with the military or AAA discount. It was a fair amount of walking, climbing, etc. Certainly not handicap accessible, which makes sense....but understand if you have knee replacements - you need a good bend to get through the... More

Big ships from the past, more of what kids would enjoy unless you're a ship buff. They were from times past and you can go on board. They sit right in the harbor and makes for a nice back drop for photo op.
