Good to see historic ships in the harbor.

As time was short, I could not afford to go inside the historic ships and explore these leisurely. Whatever time I had on my hand, I could see historic ships, at least from outside and read about them. It gives a good historical feeling when you walk around these ships which created history in their time. A look at them and a few photographs will remind me of these ships.
USS Constellation - definitely go
Aug 30, 2014 by: cookiebox from Baltimore, Maryland
As a local Baltimore neighbor ... I have not been on the Constellation until today, and it was so worth the trip and the few dollars admission. My teens and I enjoyed it very much .. to see the different lifestyle, to learn of the history, and then to be able to see the cannon work was great fun. A trip that young and old will remember. As an elderly person, I was not prepared (or able) to walk down all 4 levels of the ship, so for me, seeing the top level and the 3rd level was enough for me.
Got to go inside and on the upper decks

Cool historical coast guard ship (said to be the last survivor of Pearl Harbor). You get to walk through the ship and there are some informational videos inside as well that you can watch. For the kids, there's a few poster boards that feature "Soogie" the Jack Russell Terrier (she was an honorary coast guard back around world war 2) and kids can search around the ship for a pawprint to see Soogie's favorite hideaways in the ship. After you explore the inside, you are directed to the upper decks where you must take ladders to go up and down. So, if you're afraid of heights or are clumsy, you might want to skip this part.
well worth the money

History At Its Best
Aug 26, 2014 by: DestinationDiaries from Louisville, Kentucky
The Inner Harbor area of Baltimore boasts many attractions... truly something to entertain everyone. However, this just might be my favorite! Imagine, exploring some of the best preserved ships in the country. You can touch, climb down ladders, squeeze through tunnels, an duck through doorways. But best of all, you can immerse yourself in great moments of our nation's history. You may visit one or two ships, or all four, including a lighthouse. The Historic Ships collection consists of the Seven Foot Knoll Lighthouse, the USS Constellation, USCG Cutter Taney, Lightship Chesapeake, and the magnificent submarine USS Torsk. Walking onto any of these vessels is like stepping back in history. In an almost museum-like setting, you can view artifacts, learn about life on board, or explore on your own.
