Come see USS Constitution from keel up before she re-enters Boston Harbor! Parts of her now visible will soon be submerged and out of sight until 2037. Visit us at the USS Constitution Museum and discover the secrets to "Old Ironsides'" 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 you to experience 18th century ship construction and the demands of a sailor’s life. Explore our galleries for the opportunity to wield a caulking mallet, scrub a deck, reef a sail, and rest in a hammock throughout Harborfest and beyond!
