The U.S.S. Constitution is moored here. I've toured it a few years ago, but currently there is substantive work on the ship and it is often closed to the public. It is a Must-See when in Boston, so inquire ahead of time of its availability...More

The shipyard played a large role in the manufacture of ropes and metalworks for the Navy at one point. Also a major hub for putting ships into dry dock for repair. Fascinating displays - very well done. The USS Constitution "Old Ironsides" - the world's...More

This Navy Yard houses the USS Constitution and Museum. It is clean and well-kept. The Naval officers assigned here are informative and friendly. The day we visited access to the ship was available to the public. There are also great views of the Boston skyline...More

The naval yard is a worthwhile stop on a visit to Boston. Although while were there in July the USS Constitution was in dry dock being repaired, it was still magnificent to see from the outside (I'd done the full tour on a previous trip...More

This is the place in Boston where the USS Constitution and USS Cassin Young are docked. They are both very interesting to see. It's also interesting to see a working Naval facility. The USS Cassin Young was closed on the day of our visit, but...More

We stopped here as a part of our trip to Boston. We love history, especially maritime, so this was a no-brainer for us. There's no fee to get in, but make sure you bring your ID if you are over 18. Also, wear sunblock. The...More

Visited to get NPS passport stamp. Found ranger very helpful but no scheduled ranger talks. Video interesting to see what shipyard like in the past. USS Constitution currently in dry dock but still can visit. Over 18 must present identification.

Charlestown’s hilly roads, narrow streets and gaslight
lamps, make it an enticing neighborhood to visit.
Follow the Freedom Trail over the Washington St bridge
from the North End or take the scenic water locks to
Paul Revere Park. Walk through City Square and stroll
down cute Main street, wandering up the windy
residential streets to Monument Square, where you can
learn about the city’s history along with a great view
