Built in 1797, the world's oldest commissioned naval vessel still afloat, the USS Constitution, is most famous for her actions in 1812, the defeat and capture of several warships, one of the battles earning her the nickname of Old Ironsides.

USS Constitution Museum, Boston Reviews
I would love to revisit here. We found it on our walking tour. It was amazing to climb aboard and see a real ship. It puts size, well height into perspective on those who lived on these ships. I fit perfectly and didnt have to bend at all, but I'm 5'4. :) we took tons of photos and had a wonderful time.
It was lots of fun. The staff are very kind and informative. After exploring the ship, it’s worth coming in here and learning more about its construction and history. They’ve worked hard to make sure it is a great experience for visitors of all ages. There is no entry fee, though they do ask for a suggested donation.
This museum as well as the ship itself were some of the highlights of my quick trip to Boston. We took the trolley tour to get here and spent quite a bit of time. There is plenty to see for young and old alike. The museum has a lot of educational interactive experiences. Highly recommended!!!
What a cool museum this was! We thought we'd just pop in but ended up staying a while because there were so many interesting things to see and do. The staff was super friendly and gave great explanations. It might lengthen your day to stop by but it was totally worth it for us to learn the fascinating history of this ship and ship building in general!
This is one of the best museum interpretations I have seen of a standing exhibition. Telling the story by using different people involved in the ship's conception was genius. These illustrated the conflicting needs and interests of real people while explaining why some history happened. Plus the workshops that teach the logistics of ship building were fun and thoughtful. And the use of electronics throughout was really well done.
