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.

We took the grandsons ages 5 and 7 to 3 of the 4 boats offered on the tour. The best one was the Constellation because the kids were able to run around, go up and down 4 different levels. The adults in the group found the submarine Torsk more interesting but the area was very confined for the kids. We... More

We only had time to tour the USS Constellation. Very well done. Very informative. Many displays depicting life on a ship. We were even there for the firing of the canon. Good acitivity for families.

I could really just feel the era of the voyagers, when the only challenge was to go as far out as you can to explore new lands. Many past great stories had come alive for me!

We purchased the pass for all 4 venues and saw the sub, the sailing ship and the clipper. The sub was not my favorite, but the sailing and clipper were pretty good. My husband would say they were ALL good. Definitely worth seeing if you have the time.

All the ships are open and you can walk through them. It was interesting to learn the roles the different ships played in our maritime and wartime history

There was a Living Social coupon for the ships, so we decided to add it to our Inner Harbor trip. So glad we did! My 9 year daughter loved every ship we went on. I did too! The history and information was exciting to read. We learned a lot and loved touring each ship, especially the submarine. Watch your head... More

The USS Constellation is the main attraction, but all the ships are worth seeing as part of a visit to the harbor.
