In addition to this fascinating sailing ship with a long history, there are smaller ships, boats, submarines, and large indoor exhibit areas. All a nautical lover would want!

It is a great feeling to be suddenly on board of such a historic vessel. The tickets are $16 for adults and you get to see other Maritime Museum ships as well. The curators are excellent source of information. Do not hesitate to ask questions.

An amazing old 19th century sailing barque, built during the American Civil War. In excellent condition (they actually sail it at least once a year). Stunning to stand on the deck and realize it went around the world 21 times!

This was a great experience see and learn about the history of the Star. I would definitely recommend it because of the many sights inside as well as the new renovations done in the boat.
