USS Constitution Museum

Building 22 , Charlestown Navy Yard, Boston, MA 02129

The USS Constitution Museum serves as the memory and educational voice of USS Constitution, by collecting, preserving, and interpreting the stories of “Old Ironsides” and the people associated with her. The Museum is a not-for-profit educational organization founded in 1972, welcoming over 350,000 visitors annually. The USS Constitution Museum is located in the historic Charlestown Navy Yard, just across the dock from “Old Ironsides,” which remains a commissioned naval vessel. Come furl a sail, fire a cannon, and scrub the decks to learn what life was like at sea over 200 year ago!
