USS Constellation

Commissioned in 1855, the USS Constellation was the last all-sail ship built by the United States Navy. Today, the historic vessel lies at anchor in Baltimore's Inner Harbor, where visitors can climb aboard and learn about the ship's history, including its mission to disrupt the slave trade and its latter role in delivering famine relief supplies to Ireland.

Visitors are welcome to climb aboard and inspect the giant machines, many of which are kept in a restored house also holding a wealth of historical displays and railroad memorabilia.
