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.

Historic Ships in Baltimore reviews
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.

Wonderful ship tour on these floating jewels of American history.
I had a fantastic time exploring the Historic Ships in Baltimore. I spent an afternoon wandering through and learning about each one from the amazing staff. Some tight spaces and uneven walkways to be aware of & could be a lot of legwork for little ones, but overall is welcoming & educational for all ages
