Foursquare Tips

  • If you feel like taking the quick way back to boston hop on the T ferry that goes over to the Aquarium! It's $1.70, CharlieCard doesn't count
  • The USS Constitution Museum is a quick boat ride from Boston Harbor. Check out the interactive displays on site and take a tour of the ship.
  • Families can see what it was like to sail on this ship when they swing in sailor hammocks and ponder whether they could stomach a meal ration of wormy hardtack.
  • The movie (walk straight back until you see the flat screen TV) was very well done and gives you a good idea of what life was life on the ship.
  • The All Hands on Deck exhibit is amazing! Can't wait until 2012
  • The "All Hands on Deck: A Sailor's Life in 1812" exhibit uses authentic storytelling and hands-on activities to portray the lives of sailors on board the USS Constitution in the War of 1812.
  • The USS Constitution is the best part but the museum has a lot of cool information about the times the boat was built
