Good time.

Fun for the whole family. Get a the hand held voice box thing for a self guided tour. The Submarine is near but the USS Constellation stole the show!

A very educational experience for the family. History at your finger tips! May not be around for long, so good to catch it when you are in Baltimore.

The ships are amazing pieces of history to explore. Our son loved the submarine the most, but witnessing a Cannon being fired into the harbor was a great experience also!

This was a great touring oportunity. It's so great that there are organizations that take the time and effort and money to preserve these old ships. The Constalation was really cool. It's great that you get to wonder these ships on your own and see most everything there is to see. There are placards that explain different things and the... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our time in the Inner Harbor area of Baltimore. Mainly because of this attraction. We did the tour of the USS Constellation one day and the USS Torsk another. The staff was awesome, and very helpful! As a history buff, I ask lots of questions and really appreciate the patience they showed me. lol. You can get... More

It's difficult to downgrade any historical sight, and these ships are no exception. They are well preserved, and well marked to streamline the tour of those areas accessible to the public. Four ships all within a short walk on the Inner Harbor - very well done.

If you are visiting the Inner Harbor and looking for a break from shopping and eating, this is a great choice. Good for families with younger children. They even fire off a real cannon ball as part of the tour.

A very interesting tour. We enjoyed taking a step back in time to see what our veterans and seamen had to endure. The staff was helpful and informative.

We visited the submarine. You may opt to tour one, two or all ships with tickets priced in increasing order. Was a delight touring the submarine and to think mariners lived in those tight rooms for days together. The beds, dining area, restroom etc do give us some food for thought about their tough lives. The vessel is well-maintained with... More

The Constellation is a chance to see how complicated and physical the handling of an ancient sailing ship was. You can see how tight the living quarters were. By the way, the two blisters at the stern on either side were the Captain's bath tub on one side and his toilet on the other. Next, go visit the submarine. It's... More
