  • Awesome location with two neat attractions to visit the USS Constitution and USS Cassin Young, both offer on-ship self-guided tours with guides available with in-depth information.  more »
  • We visited this park on September 28. Opposite the entrance of the park is a parking lot. We were lucky. Every third Saturday there is a living history event period 1812 with a surgeon and marines...  more »
  • Great museum full of history about building warships like the U.S.S Constitution which is the oldest still commissioned warship in the world and the Cassin Young battleship. Our favorite part was being able to set foot and imagine what life must have been like when battling at sea. This ship is a true majesty an engineering marvel that was complex for it's time. To get here take a ferry from Long Wharf South it's about 15 minutes compared to take a car. Bunker Hill is also close by if you have time to visit. Museum and visiting the ships is free however you'll need either a passport, state or Federal I.D. prior to visiting the ships. Enjoy the photos
  • USS Constitution was really cool and the other ship was too. Great gift shop and museum. It was all free too. Gift shop has some cool stuff in it and the museum was very interesting. Definitely recommend stopping here if you’re in Boston.
