The boys were so excited about it and had a great time. They were amazed about the size of the chain and anchor. Lots of fun.

3 ships in port
Jan 2020
as they do not seem to be an assamble and spread out in the port it appears a bit odd. you can purchase a ticked for all three but that is about their connection extend. But than coming from a port city in Germany this is not really interesting nor impressive.

Cute thing to do in Baltimore
Jan 2020
Cute and quick way to spend some time in Baltimore. It’s cool to be able to walk around on older ships and submarines as a learning experience with kids. Slightly pricey though.

Super interesting walking through the ships

Highly recommend. Super interesting walking through the ships. Each ship has an amazing story. Highlight was the 3pm daily tour of the USGC Cutter Taney.

Well worth the ticket pricing to see these. I thought it was very interesting and I spent quite a bit of time reading all of the information.

Great Collection
Nov 2019
Visited all 4 ships and found it very interesting. They are very different and yet obvious similarities. Especially interesting to see the change in accommodations over years! All tours are unguided, with signs along the way. I was disappointed in several instances (notably the Taney) where an area had been gutted and used for a display that they did not include any information on what the area had been used for originally. Also disappointed that there was no mention of the lighthouse being closed when we bought our tickets. Definitely worthwhile if interested in ships!

Well Worth Seeing
Nov 2019 • Solo
Took the tour with 4 ships. (The lighthouse is closed until April.) Started with the Constellation (the last sailing ship to be decommissioned) followed by the Chesapeake (a lightship) (which was a new ship for me) followed by a submarine the Torsk & last the Taney (a Coast Guard ship used in WWII followed by Vietnam before being decommissioned) & each was very different & unique. Since I had suffered an injury in 2017 was not sure if I could handle this tour but I was so grateful that I was able to take this historic tour. This is good for all ages (starting about 4-5 & up) it takes about 2.5-5+ hours depending on what one does but once tickets are bought one can come back multiple days to see each ship if needed (each ship seen once)

My family and I went and explored the torsk and USS Constellation. It was very interesting and for the price it isn’t too bad.
