You can see the dry dock (with written explanation on it's use), have good views back toward the city. Look at the Commodore's house across the road with all it's rounded "corners" and built by navy personnel. We took the ferry back into the middle...More

Interesting museum that is very child friendly. The dry dock had a lot of information and the ship was beautiful. Security and scanning before you enter the visitor center. Bathrooms available and gift shop.

the navy yard is like the past meeting the present, lots to see and learn. Good for family with children and young adults. only thing to realize is there is no parking in Boston so plan on using your own vehicle.

The area was very nice and open to be in. The only real distraction was that to get to parking was confusing.

I never realised there was so much maritime history in Boston. Earlier in the 20th century, the scale of these yards was just immense, and the museum tells the story fully, enriched with fascinating photographs that add so much to the human context of those...More

To get in is a hassle. You need to show photo id and then go through a metal detector. Then you go through the shop. Finally you get to see old iron sides. It is very good. Nearby is a dry dock and it is....More

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
