Historic Ships in Baltimore

Baltimore's floating museums, everything fom Civil War-era tall ship to a World War II sub, all have a story to tell.
Baltimore Maritime Museum
Four separate sites in the Inner Harbor -- a lighthouse and three historic ships -- make up this museum. Tickets can be purchased at a kiosk near the Baltimore Aquarium or at the U.S.S. Constellation.
U.S.S. Constellation
The last all-sail ship of the U.S. Navy now rests in Baltimore's Inner Harbor and is open as a museum.
U.S.S. John Brown
Built in Baltimore during World War II, this "Liberty Ship" is one of the last of its kinds. It's now docked in Canton.
Pride of Baltimore II
Rebuilt after its predecessor when down in Puerto Rico in 1986, this schooner is Maryland's goodwill ambassador. Moving from port to port in Maryland and around the world, the ship develops a schedule of public day sails, field trip opportunities and tours every year.
