Worth a stroll. I love seeing the old ships and went on board for an interesting step into the past. The views of the Baltimore Harbor are special, as well

This is a great feature at the harbor. Our children asked many questions about the ships and their history. It was fascinating to see all the detail and craftsmanship that goes into these vessels. This is a must see when at the harbor. We didn't do any tours on this trip because each tour was an hour or more and... More

We had a great day taking a tour of the 4 ships. Make sure to get the 4 ship package, saves a lot of money. The submarine and tall ship is a must. Try to time you visit with the powder monkey tour it is well worth it, a lot of information about the daily life on ship.

Just the U.S.S. Constitution makes this a mandatory tourist stop for everyone, but there is lots more to do as well. Allow 2 hrs for the Constitution and you will need a guided tour, but give the other ships some time as well. They are all worth part of your day here.

We took the 4 ship tour which is the best deal only 18 dollars for the tickets. Started at the USS Constitution and were lucky to time a guided tour through the ship, 2 hours of unbelievable knowledge of the ship and times. The submarine is a must, the size of the ship makes you wonder how they lived in... More

The ship has a self guided tour with an electronic hand held guide. Ship is easy to get around and very educational. If the temp is above 90 it is a bit stuffy. Lots of stairs. Good time.

If you like history, then you will love this place. There is so much to see. I can easily take you a full day if you actually take your time to see everything.

Kids and I showed up at 11:30am by chance and was told about cannon firing at noon. Cool. Nicely restored ship, one can really get a feel for life on board the sailing vessel near the Civil War. Highly recommend it. Parking is a pain since it is downtown, but oh well. Did not tour other ships.

These were great fun - even on rainy days. On hot days, the sub comes with a little misery. Save some cash and book all ships at once. If you don't you will regret it. Kids can touch everything and the architecture is really cool. There is no tour guide, but there are always plenty of other guests so you... More
