With plans completed in May and the keel laid on June 25, 1853, Constellation was the last all sail ship designed by the Navy. Throughout the years, Constellation saw the seas of the Mediterranean, Gibraltar, Ireland and many more. Her last public appearance was as a commissioned vessel to commemorate the 150th anniversary of the United States Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1926.
In 1954 Constellation was moved to Baltimore in a “floating dry-dock” for restoration and preservation. Presently located on Pier 1 in Baltimore’s Inner Harbor, the USS Constellation is open to the public as a museum and as a venue for your next event. The last all sail warship built by the US Navy provides a spectacular view of Baltimore’s historic waterfront and illuminating skyline.
Your guests will step aboard the USS Constellation for an evening of wartime stories and adventure. As the only Civil War era vessel still afloat, the USS Constellation will allow your guests to step back in time and explore the decks of history. Guests can be greeted by shipmen dressed in appropriate attire and on hand to provide tours of the different levels of this historical ship throughout the event. After enjoying dinner and trip back in time guests will hear the cannons will blast signifying an end to a wonderful evening onboard the USS Constellation.
