On our trip to Boston we started at the USS Constitution Museum. My boys like to complete the Junior Ranger program implemented by the National Parks Service. We were able to receive the booklets at the information desk from the USS Constitution Museum. We watched the informative video on the history of the dry dock as well as the USS Constitution. The boat itself was great to walk through. It was amazing to see how small the boat is compared to how many men lived, worked and slept on the boat while it was in service. This is a great place to visit in Boston. We were able to find street parking around the Museum without a problem.
Check one off the bucket list. This is one of the great attractions I have ever visited. The museum is great for all ages and really well set up. The ship is even greater than you can imagine. Perfectly restored and maintained. The Navy crew is genuinely glad to serve aboard her. Really helpful and available. Please see this and bring your kids
