2 of the most informative hours of our girls trip to Boston. The ship was being repaired, but we learned so much from the museum games, movie and displays. It was much more enjoyable than we expected. Glad we made time for it.

We've been to MANY a military and historic attraction. Being at Boston Harbor was an awesome feeling. This had several closed off areas and should have been an outside viewing-only attraction. You could walk on the decks but not touch anything.

Not exactly a museum, but very open for a good visit. Perhaps walk the trail one way and catch the ferry for the other.

As a kid living in Boston, I loved visiting Old Ironsides(Constitution) It was fun to climb the ladders and look around the decks. Moved away from Boston almost 50 years ago. Just returned on a trip with my family. My spouse, kids, and grand kids...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
