Historic Ships in Baltimore are the star attractions of Baltimore’s Inner Harbor. The ships and the Seven Foot Knoll Lighthouse are open daily for visitors and special offers include the audio tour, hands-on activities and daily cannon firing demonstrations on board USS CONSTELLATION. Visitors can tour the submarine USS TORSK, the lightship CHESAPEAKE and learn about life on board a US Coast Guard cutter when they visit the TANEY on Pier 5.
Historic Ships in Baltimore is the steward of one of America’s premier ship collections. The 1854 US Sloop-of-War CONSTELLATION is the last all-sail warship built by the US Navy and the only vessel still afloat that was active during the Civil War. USCGC TANEY built in 1936, is the last vessel still afloat to witness the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor December 7th, 1941. US Submarine TORSK launched in 1944, sank the last two enemy combatants of WWII and holds the record for the most dives of any US submarine. Lightship CHESAPEAKE which entered service in 1930, marked the entrance to the Chesapeake Bay for many years. The Seven Foot Knoll Lighthouse marked the entrance to the Patapsco River and Baltimore Harbor starting in 1856. Each of these very special artifacts is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and has its own unique story to tell.
Open Daily, 1000 to 4:30, October – May; 10:00 to 5:30 June – October
Garage parking available at several sites around the Inner Harbor.
