Don’t miss the boat!

Don’t miss it! After three years of restoration, the hull work is nearly complete on USS Constitution. As she prepares to re-enter the water later this summer, areas now visible will soon be submerged and out of sight until 2037. After viewing the Ship, visit the USS Constitution Museum and discover the secrets to the Ship’s longevity - from the live oak in her hull to the caulking that keeps her afloat. Hands-on, minds-on programs will explain, demonstrate, and encourage visitors to experience 18th century ship construction and the demands of a sailor’s life. Wield a caulking mallet, scrub a deck, reef a sail, and rest in a hammock throughout Harborfest and beyond!
