|About these ratings|
The USS Constellation, which is currently docked in the Inner Harbor, was first launched in 1854 and has had a tenuous history throughout its active life. The last all-sail ship in the U.S. Navy, the Constellation once played a role in disrupting the slave trade and has seen duty in both world wars. Today, visitors can climb aboard and tour the decks and play the part of a 19th-century sailor (including costumes!). Cannon firing demonstrations are held every day. One TripAdvisor user says, "It's great to experience what it was like to be on a Civil War boat - everything from the bathtubs to the medical area was in great shape and had so much to teach…"
Travelers report that kids particularly enjoy hanging out on the vessel, since there is much to see and do. However, touring the ship might not be the best for those who can get a bit claustrophobic since some spaces can be tight and hard to get around.
The USS Constellation welcomes visitors during November through March from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and extends its hours the summer. Adult admission prices start at $11; however, prices are subject to change. Consult the Historic Ships of Baltimore's official website for current hours and special exhibition openings.
