The USS Constitution Museum and the Boston National Historical Park are reimagining what the visitor experience at the Charlestown Navy Yard could be.

Founded in 1800, the Navy Yard is among the oldest naval facilities in the United States, and is renowned for being the home port of USS Constitution. A National Park site since the 1970s, the Navy Yard welcomes more than a million visitors each year.

The Visitor Experience Planning effort includes exploring interpretive content, visitor amenities, visual identity, access, and beyond. Now is your opportunity to take part in a collaborative conversation about the Navy Yard’s future. This will be the first of many public open houses. You are invited to learn about the Navy Yard’s current conditions and context, share your Navy Yard visitor experience, and imagine its future possibilities. Family-friendly activities will be provided by NPS, USS Constitution Museum, and USS Constitution crewmembers.

Can't make it? Share your thoughts at MyNavyYard, an interactive, web-based survey.

The Visitor Experience Plan project team, including consultant team Sasaki Associates and Lord Cultural Resources, will continue to engage the community in a collaborative dialogue through additional public open houses and focus groups.
