“Great Value!!! Great history!!!”
Reviewed March 10, 2014

The ships are so well preserved & the price was GREAT!! We used Auto Club & received a great rate!! Adults only $11.00 a senior rate for my husband was only $9.00- that was for all 4 ships!!! Give yourself at least 3 hrs..probably 4hrs for viewing all 4 ships. Great historical tour!!

“Cold but worth it. ”
Reviewed March 2, 2014 via mobile

Great selection of ships and knowledgeable guides on board. I didn't go on the submarine but did everything else. Really liked the Constellation. Reasonable price for what you get to see. Also your tickets do expire. So if you don't have the time to see everything in one day or trip come back again with your tickets and they will be honored.

“U.S.S. Constellation is the best!”
Reviewed March 1, 2014

My son and I visited over February break and he had been wanting to get on these ships since we had started planning our trip.The little girls we were with hadn't originally wanted to go on them, but he is a great salesman and so we all went to go see all three ships. We had a great break fast at Shirley's Cafe up the block and then toured the ships before getting in our car to drive back to New York. We got the three ships for one price. Non history people might not think these self guided tours are worth it, but I learned a lot while ducking and climbing ladders in the submarine, light ship and U.S.S. Constellation, which was the best of the lot. Fascinating to find out that the sub and the Constellation actually served at the same time - World War II. Just don't' take pictures with the ships..... pay the admission price, climb aboard and save a piece of U.S. history.

“Great experience even in the cold”
Reviewed February 21, 2014

We went in really cold weather, but entrances and surrounding areas were clear of snow and ice. Some ships were available to tour, but the Water Taxi was not available due to weather. Great picture opportunities. The lightship and screw-type lighthouse were interesting. Great shopping and food are right there, within walking distance, too.

Historic Ships is near the World Trade Center in Baltimore. It's free if you just wanna take a picture with the ships.
