    Standing proud on the docks beside the USS Constitution, this fantastic museum tells the story of the famous ship that dates from 1797. ‘Old Ironsides’ as she is lovingly known is the celebrated wooden-hulled, three-masted frigate that served most notably in the War of 1812 against the British.


    Upon entry to this exceptional museum, you will walk directly over the location of the original pump wells that first drained the dry dock for the USS Constitution. Back in 1833, these giant steam pumps labored for 6 hours to drain the dock to make way for the magnificent ship’s vital repairs.

    Located on Boston’s Freedom Trail, the Navy Yard offers two historic ships to learn about, interactive exhibits, and engaging programs for all to enjoy. You’ll see how to furl a sail, fire a cannon, and scrub the decks for a true experience of life at sea over 200 years ago!

    There's so much to see on at the Constitution Museum in Boston, so don't miss out on the experience!
