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.

  • Lots of old ships hanging out in Inner harbor. You can pay and tour some of the ships too. But even if you don't want to go on the ships its still awesome just to be able to see some of these old ship...  more »
  • A place with great views, some worthy of being time boats. A place to walk with peace of mind to enjoy the landscape.

  • 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 »

  • Neat ships to explore and visit. Displays inside interesting and informative. Be prepared to climb up and down ladders. Not good for those with bad knees.
  • The Historic Ships in Baltimore is a fine collection of three ships and a submarine that can be toured. The location of the ships docked in the Inner Harbor is a nice area to walk around.
  • 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.
