This maritime museum in the city's harbor showcases four warfare vessels and a lighthouse. At Historic Ships in Baltimore, start with an audio tour aboard the four decks of USS Constellation. Uniformed crewmembers describe what living and working conditions were like on the last all-sail warship built by the U.S. Navy. Continue on to Lightship Chesapeake, where exhibits include a display about the sailors' canine companions. The submarine USS Torsk allows visitors to see the torpedo rooms, navigation station, operation station, engine room, and crew berthing areas, where over 80 sailors lived. At Pier 5, U.S. Coast Guard Cutter Taney is docked, and you can view the deck, berthing areas, mess deck, and wardroom. Finish at the Seven Foot Knoll Lighthouse to learn about lighthouses in the region and for great harbor views.

  • So eye opening and interesting to experiment and go through the ships and submarines. We even met some vets who were actually on the ship it made everything more authentic! 
  • The beautiful USS Constellation is docked in the harbor. You can purchase tickets to board and feel the ship move. A must do. 
  • There are four vessels around the inner harbor, the three masted Constellation, a light ship, a sub and a Coast Guard Cutter. It will take several hours to get to all four.
