U.S.S. Constitution: Tours, Exhibits and Artifacts

Enjoy an interactive experience that will take you on a fascinating journey back to key colonial conflicts, when you visit the U.S.S. Constitution in Boston. First launched in 1797, the U.S.S. Constitution is a three-masted, wooden-hulled heavy frigate that played a central role in important maritime battles. Dubbed "Old Ironsides," the ship gained much of its fame after defeating five British warships and capturing numerous merchant ships during the War of 1812. Today, it has become a compelling artifact that educates and inspires visitors of every age and background.

  • How much of the ship is original?

    According to the Naval History and Heritage Command Detachment Boston, today's U.S.S. Constitution maintains about 10 to 15 percent of its original wood, including the lower futtocks, keel and the deadwood at the stem and stern.
  • How can I learn about life at see on the ship?

    The U.S.S. Constitution Museum provides an "All Hands on Deck: A Sailor’s Life in 1812" exhibit that provides fascinating insight into what life was like aboard the USS Constitution. The museum also features a number of other exhibits and artifacts and is located just a few yards from the ship.
