Historic Ships in Baltimore, Baltimore

(4.6/5 based on 1,100+ reviews on the web)
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.
