USS Constitution Tours

The USS Constitution is a fascinating example of United States and military history. The 44-gun, Boston-built vessel hearkens back to 1797 when President George Washington ordered that six frigates be constructed at naval yards along the east coast.

“Old Ironsides," as it’s known today, is officially “America’s Ship of State” and one of the most popular and well respected military attractions in the country. Before entering, visit the onsite museum, which provides insight into US military history, including the War of 1812 and the general timeline of the USS Constitution.

Once aboard the ship, free guided tours are offered year-round by knowledgeable navy personnel. Visitors are also invited to explore and photograph a large portion of the ship, including the main deck and the level below deck. Select summer visitors are invited to join in a special Constitution Experience. Every Tuesday morning at 8 a.m., the crew undertakes a Morning Colors ceremony that includes a rare firing of the ship's saluting battery. Visitors can then board for an extended tour through the ship’s innerworkings before visiting the official museum.

In summer, it is open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.; in October until 4 p.m. From November 1 to March 31, it is open Thursday through Sunday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Due to its location, immediate, immediate access is restricted.
