Loved viewing these historical boats

My husband, 10 year old son and I toured all 4 ships (teenage daughter wasn't interested). We thoroughly enjoyed seeing the boats and imagining what life must have been like living on them.
Very cool ships!

Spent a couple days in Baltimore and this is a must see. The submarine was our favorite, a lot of small and tights spaces to fit into, but if you don't mind that, its a cool experience being down inside a real submarine. All the boats were very nice, a lot of history to go along with all of them, if you ride the water taxi with an all day pass you get a coupon to visit all 4 ships for the price of 1, it was a great deal!

I liked the Constellation the most. The guided tour gave ore of the history and I liked that. We watched the large gun demo and found that interesting. All of the ships were so different. I also learned why the Chesapeake is a LIGHT ship. If you don't know go and find out!

The ships are beautful and again a Must See. The Inner Harbor reminds me of South Street Seaport in New York and the Ships are a Plus that puts a Cherry on Top!!
Step onboard into history!

There are 4 historic ships and you can buy tickets to tour 1, 2, and 3 ships of your choice or all four. I toured the USS Constellation. This lovingly restored sloop-of-war is staffed by friendly, welcoming, and super-knowledgeable members of the US Coast Guard. You can use an audio tour or explore on your own. Throughout the ship, information stations/posters describe what you are looking at or standing beside, along with historical context and sometimes quotes from actual sailors who served on Constellation. You will learn so much, and get a true sense of the rugged (understatement) lives of these sailors, particularly of the Civil War period. This ship is magnificent, moving, and inspiring. You do not have to be a history buff to have an amazing experience. Buy tix online to save time and plan up to two hours (it took me 3) to tour the whole ship.
