“A must see for any historian”
Reviewed 20 August 2014

A piece of history! Kept in great shape. Listen to the guides, they know a lot about the vessel. Did not know the turn it every 4th of July so it wears evenly from the water.

“The real thing”
Reviewed 19 August 2014

This is the real thing. Not a Disney reproduction, or a modern rebuild. You get to see how it really was, in what seems like a really tiny ship to be sailing the open ocean and fighting cannon battles. Great opportunity for all ages to see a real piece of history.

“Great Free Attraction”
Reviewed 19 August 2014

It was fun to board the USS Constitution and hear about the history from working Navy personnel. I was struck by how small the living quarters were, and how short the ceilings were. (I am over 6' and needed to duck in several areas.

“It was Interesting”
Reviewed 19 August 2014

I'm not much of a history person, and I certainly don't find ships that interesting, but it was a cool thing to see and check out and my family seemed to enjoy their time there. It's a good way to waste some time for a small price. Kids would probably find it more enjoyable than teens.
