“Our tour on the USS Constitution”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2013

The ship is kept in such great condition. The young sailor who told us about the ship was very friendly and had a great sense of humor. History was made very interesting.

“Great tour overall”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2013

We certainly found the entire area to be a great historical visit. You need a photo idea to enter the actual ship.

“Uniquely excellent site”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2013

Fantastic rare living history experience. I understand the wait line is long in Jly-Aug, but the ship is totally cool and the sailors are into their duty. It's on the short list of don't-miss attractions in Boston.

“Very cool experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2013

We highly recommend that you listen to the tour session. It is the only way to travel on the lower deck of the ship. It was also very imformative to have the guide give us background information on the USS Constition.

“Take some ID!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2013

The museum was very interesting especially the life of a sailor on the Constitution. My boys are aged 5 and 11 and exhibit kept them interested which is unusual. I have only given this 3 stars as to visit the ship itself you need to have photo ID on you and our passports were left at the hotel. This wasn't mentioned in any of the guide books but as a working ship and still part of US Navy, ID was necessary.
