My son and I explored all four of the ships. They were very impressive. We really enjoyed the Constellation, the sub and the destroyer. The lightship was okay. The Constellation was really impressive and you could explore several decks. A word of caution. The headroom on the lower decks is low. I am five foot four and had to bend... More

Always some fun ships to look at in the Harbor... Star Spangled Banner comes to mind and you can almost envision the bombs bursting in air.

Historian buffs, visiting the Inner Harbor and stepping onto the historical ships is like reliving history. You can almost feel the energy of those who once walked the decks. It's great for kids and adults alike.

After our visit to Fort McHenry, we decided to visit the USS Constellation and the other historic ships along the waterfront in Baltimore. I believe there are 5 different sites you can visit including a Coast Guard cutter, a WWII submarine, a unique lighthouse, the Lightship Chesapeake and the USS Constellation. You can pay for all 5 places or pick... More

Friends and I had a free afternoon and decided to visit all 4 historic ships. My favorite was the Constellation, but I love tall ships.... Each ship was interesting and offered insight into how the sailors lived and worked.
