Historic Ships is proud to offer Free Admission to active duty, reservist, and retired uniformed service personnel ARRIVING IN UNIFORM and with valid military ID. Discounted tickets are available for all other active duty, reservist, and retired uniformed service personnel and dependents.

Group Tickets

All groups must include ten or more people age 6 and above, with at least one adult (age 18+) for every 10 minors.

Guided Tours

For school, youth, and scout groups, we highly recommend a guided experience of USS Constellation. This includes a presentation of your choosing with a Civil War sailor as your host and a hands-on activity. Activities (bracing the yards, turning the capstan, and drilling with one of the ship’s broadside guns) focus on the lives and duties of those who served at sea in President Lincoln’s Navy.

Groups may also purchase tickets for the Constellation tour plus self-guided tours of the rest of the exhibits.
