USS Constitution Museum Reviews & Ratings
Loved every bit! The Navy Officers presenting the USS Constitution Story were as much entertaining as they were detailed. Definitely worthy of the visit and walk through time. It’s the oldest Commissioned Navy Vessel today at only 225yrs old she’s looking great. 3 levels were open for viewing with sectioned closed off for renovations. She’s a beauty !
A nice walk through the history of the USS Constitution. The museum is simply a suggested donation and they aren't pushy about it. Give what you can. There are a number of hands-on displays and fun facts to help keep anyone engaged. A good stop for families and groups looking for something interesting to do in the area.
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.
The museum is situated near the ship USS Constitution at the end of Boston's Freedom Trail. There are several hands-on displays and fun facts to help keep anyone engaged. The ships are very well preserved and amazing to see. They've done a fantastic job of preserving this piece of history. Definitely worth a visit!
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
