If you came for a game or a business visit, it is likely you have a short time to visit places. The inner harbour is right close to the Orioles Stadium and downtown Baltimore. A quick stroll to check the historic ship is a a great opportunity to enjoy this fantastic piece of the city.

Besides,... More

USS Constellation is a fully restored Sloop of War, and was once the flagship of the anti-slavery patrols. If you are interested in maritime history, or simply the shared history of the United States, it's worth the visit. There are some amazing facts to be learned, both about our Country's efforts to combat the international slave trade, and about the... More

All the ships you can visit are worth it, but the Constelltion is probably the most impressive - loveingly restored with a great peak into life on board. All the ships had very informative signs plus the volunteers aboard to answers questions.

It's very reasonable to pay to explore the history ships in the Baltimore Harbor. I went with a friend, his parents, and his elementary aged kids. We all thoroughly enjoyed it. My young friend is in the Navy and could relay many things about living on a submarine similar to the one we explored. The other ship they helped all... More

A wonderful place to go back in the historical times; a place that helps to understand how challenging is the mariner's life. How the lived and guarded the country within the basic amenities...salut

During the week we had the whole ship to ourselves. The "crew" was very entertaining and knowledgeable about the history of the ship. Very interesting learning experience. Great for all ages. 15$ for a ticket that lets you visit two of the historic ships in the harbor.

Thank Joe M
