  • My daughter and had the privilege of getting a private tour of this magnificent ship by Peter Robbins yesterday. Proud to be a part the US Navy - Peter is one of the men who can take this beautiful ship out of port with a crew of approximately 84. He took us throughout the ship and shared such amazing details that only a knowing eye could share. We never would have embraced the true history of this ship without his knowledge and attention to detail. Thank you Peter for showing us the beauty of the USS constitution and thank you for your service. You gave these two ladies from New York a memory they won’t soon forget !
  • A great attraction to take people from out of town. The staff was super helpful, and it was free to enter. I found some good postcards for my Navy dad. Great for families as well. Just be aware that the ceilings are a bit low and that there are some steep stairs.
