  • The boys were so excited about it and had a great time. They were amazed about the size of the chain and anchor. Lots of fun.  more »
  • as they do not seem to be an assamble and spread out in the port it appears a bit odd. you can purchase a ticked for all three but that is about their connection extend. But than coming from a port...  more »

  • We loved touring the USS Constellation. It was fully open for touring and it was amazing to imagine what it might have been like to be on a warship back in the day. We also enjoyed touring the USS torsk which is a submarine that was in service during World War II and apparently was in service until the late sixties or early seventies. It is now permanently on display in Baltimore and open for tours.
  • Very cool exhibits and ships! We only toured two, but they were well worth the ticket. The volunteers on board are very knowledgeable and enhance the experience that much more! Absolutely incredible to see that much history in one place and I'd recommend it for visitors of all ages.
