Great place to visit old ships. Best value is to buy a ticket to see all four ships during the summer months. Only two ships are open during the winter months.

USS Constellation, USS Torsk, USCGC Taney, Lightship Chesapeake, Seven Foot Knoll Lighthouse--a great way to go back in time before everything was digital...when crew members dealt with challenges though intellectual creativity, muscle, sweat, and determination. Friendly staff/docents. Great way to spend an afternoon. Learned much...More

There’s a constant turnover of old ships docking in the harbor. Not really sure if there’s anywhere else that you can experience boarding an ancient ship like these. Very interesting to walk around on a ship that you may have seen in a movie and...More

We came here around 5pm on a Sunday. They don't seem to be open. We were disappointed and left. Maybe call before visiting?

I was able to see all 4 types of ships in the harbor and the lighthouse for $18. I had all of them to myself so I could take my time on what I wanted. Stairs can be tricky -

What a sight! The ship take you back to a different time in American history when you see the high masts and the beautiful lines of this ship docked in the harbor. It doesn't require much imagination to picture yourself sailing the oceans looking for...More

On the outside the ships are very awesome. But on the inside, I don't see any person who is overweight, handicapped or not flexible enjoying it. Too many little hallways below and the stairs were very steep.

If you are just walking along the harbor, no problem... but definitely not on the ships.

If you can find a spot on the street it's meters and that's the cheapest. There is also a small parking lot directly across from harbor place and not attached to a hotel. It's still expensive but not as bad as the hotel... More
