Must see. Oldest active duty US Navy warship . Requires drivers license or passport to enter. security tight. Tour the ship which is afloat on water. What interesting to be us that the heavy cannon have shorter barrels than their shore based cousins. Allow 45...More

What a National Treasure. You can't but have pride in this ship of how it created national pride at a time we were the ultimate underdog to more established countries. Thank you children of Boston for saving this trophy. Undefeated!

Had a wonderful experience here. If you love history, this is a "must-see" for you. Take time to visit the museum and the local area.

The Constitution is always an impressive ship to behold and explore. Our family loves it and the story behind it. The members of US Navy on the ship are always helpful and pleasant and willing to share the stories of life on board and battles.

If you're in Boston, don't miss this and the accompanying museum. There is no charge for touring the ship. You get to walk around the entire ship, see the Captain's quarters, the table where the battle plans were made, and the canons lined up. The...More

Charlestown
Charlestown’s hilly roads, narrow streets and gaslight
lamps, make it an enticing neighborhood to visit.
Follow the Freedom Trail over the Washington St bridge
from the North End or take the scenic water locks to
Paul Revere Park. Walk through City Square and stroll
down cute Main street, wandering up the windy
residential streets to Monument Square, where you can
learn about the city’s history along with a great view

1-2 hours, depends on how long you stay in museum and how much you read. Ship can be done in about 45 minutes, including time to talk to workers, but it's 45 minutes well spent!
