U.S.S. Constitution Museum

U.S.S. Constitution Museum

This naval museum is dedicated to the USS Constitution, the oldest warship still in commission.

The stories of USS Constitution and the people associated with her come to life in the Museum’s exhibits. Two “core” exhibits, “Old Ironsides in War and Peace” and “Sailors Speak: A Sailor’s Life for Me?”, and smaller, temporary shows interpret objects from the USS Constitution’s varied career in American history. Along with artifacts in cases, the Museum lets visitors explore and experience the ship’s history in engaging interactive exhibits that create a personal connection to Old Ironsides.
