“A MUST SEE in Boston!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 3, 2012

Oldest commissioned vessel in the US Navy? You need to go aboard to fully understand its importance in US History. Actually still, on occasion, raises it's sails and gloriously sails through the harbor.

“Wow!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 24, 2012

To be on a ship from the late 1700's and to hear the history of it being defeated even when it's still active today. "Old Ironsides" is a must see

“Don't miss "Old Ironsides"”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 20, 2012

We have been to the USS Constitution several times but never get tired of this wonderful "living museum." It is just such a wonderful bit of American history. Interpretive tours by actual US Navy active duty crewmembers: best of all, it's FREE! Finally, our taxes at work in a good cause!
