A wonderful tourist attraction at the end point of the Freedom Trail. If you have photo ID you may visit the boat free of charge. The vessel is stunning: it is really big, very beautiful and very old, built in 1797. If you have any...More

My husband always wanted to see the Constitution since he was a boy. His father and brother were in the Navy and he has had a dream to see this ship. It did not disappoint

The visit to the USS Constitution was simply amazing to see how first hand the conditions sailors in those days had to live and work in ..... not for me for sure! During our walk around the Freedom Trail we saw details of sailors from...More

My first time visiting this Iconic site. Well worth the time to explore this piece of history. Going down the steps backwards holding onto rope sides while keeping your head down was an experience.

We visited on a wet and miserable Thursday afternoon so manoeuvring around parts of this amazing vessel were a bit tricky but we enjoyed it nevertheless. So much so that we returned on a dry sunny day to have another look and I’m so glad...More

If you're into old ships or history then this would likely be a 4 or 5 for you. I'm not. I've been on these sorts of things a few times and frankly find them boring as all heck. The top decks are nice then you...More

This is the oldest battle ship still being used. It was fun to explore and hear details. There were young men dressed in navy uniforms who work on the ship. They were very knowledgeable and did a great job answering questions. Everyone has to go...More

Charlestown’s hilly roads, narrow streets and gaslight
lamps, make it an enticing neighborhood to visit.
Follow the Freedom Trail over the Washington St bridge
from the North End or take the scenic water locks to
Paul Revere Park. Walk through City Square and stroll
down cute Main street, wandering up the windy
residential streets to Monument Square, where you can
learn about the city’s history along with a great view

We just visited there a couple weeks ago, and the answer is, "it depends" on what you choose to do between those two attractions. First, the USS CONSTITUTION is there, but not yet open (as of our visit on Friday, July 28... More

1-2 hours, depends on how long you stay in museum and how much you read. Ship can be done in about 45 minutes, including time to talk to workers, but it's 45 minutes well spent!
