USS Constitution Museum

USS Constitution Museum and Naval Yard

Visit the museum where the US Navy launched its maiden ships - including the USS Constitution, the oldest active naval ship in the world, and the USS Cassin Young, which survived kamikaze strikes in Okinawa during WW2. From the War of 1812 to present day, these ships have played vital roles in American History. Written in combination with National Park Service (NPS).
