Standing on History, the oldest commisioned warship in the US Navy. On the same decks that saw so much of our early nations history. You have to come here if in Boston.

You’ll get to visit three levels on the ship and learn its history when you take the free tour. Our tour guide was named Alexis and she did a fantastic job- she was funny and knowledgeable. The tours are given by active duty sailors. There...More

The ship is a worthwhile place to visit. You get a feel for what it was like to be onboard a ship during that era. The size of the quarters and height of the ceiling made an impression on me. I doubt that this ship...More

As a Navy Veteran it was a honor to visit the USS Constitution. The museum and ship were equally educational.

There are so many historical sights to see in this city, it can feel overwhelming -- but the USS Constitution is one you should not miss! Seems tucked away on the Freedom Trail, but is worth the stop. There is a small Museum, gift shop,...More

We really enjoyed the walk around and on the USS Constitution. It's amazing how old it is. Take time to go to the museum and learn more about it and see some artifacts.

Enjoyed the wonderful tour and informative active duty sailors on the USS Constitution. Even the CO (commanding officer) was actively on deck explaining details of this warship.

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

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!
