  • Triple AAA doesn't per se offer a lower price. You get to see all 4 ships and the lighthouse for the price of seeing two (around $55 for two adults and a child). Submarine and USS constellation are th...  more »

  • If you’re into this type of stuff, you’ll like it. It’s not much to see, so tickets are kind of expensive for it. However, you can sometimes find discounts online.  more »

  • Very reasonable price to tour 4 ships and a lighthouse in Baltimore. Our kids (5 & 7) had a good time. Lots of great, historical facts inside all the ships, One of the ships had a fun search for paw prints of a dog that had been on the ship. On another, we were in time for a sample show of firing a cannon. Lots of fun with group participation. That was my kid's favorite part.
  • Well priced and very interesting if you want to look at ships. Many of the vessels were difficult to move through. The submarine doors are very small and the Constellation has very low headroom through out most of the ship, but it was very interesting, especially the "surgeon" on the Constellation.
  • Dedicated staff who maintain and provide info about 4 historic ships. Everything is well though out and we really enjoyed touring the ships. Student discounts are available and for the price it makes sense to see all 4 instead of picking 2. You can go at your own pace, so it can take anywhere from about 1-3 hours.
  • USS Constellation (wood/sail ship) was awesome, submarine is pretty cool...other ships ok....$18 to tour all the ships (a little cheaper with military discount)
  • worth the time. great history

Where to stay in Baltimore

For quick and easy access to practically all of Baltimore's major attractionswhile on holiday, follow the example of most tourists and stay near the Inner Harbor neighborhood. Few cities boast such a well-defined tourist district, it shouldn't come as a surprise that all the major chain hotels in the city are located right in this busy neighborhood. If you prefer to stay in a quieter area offering a bit more local character, consider one of the city's outlying districts, offering affordable accommodations and plenty of dining and shopping options.
