USS Constitution Museum, {CATEGORY}

"Old Ironsides", one of the U.S. Navy's six original frigates, never lost a battle. A tour, led by an active-duty sailor in an 1812 dress uniform, is an excellent introduction to an era when the future of the new nation was anything but certain. The ship was constructed in the North End from 1794 to 1797 at a cost of $302,718, using bolts, spikes, and other fittings from Paul Revere's foundry. As the United States built its naval and military reputation, the Constitution played a key role, battling French privateers and Barbary pirates, repelling the British fleet during the War of 1812, participating in 33 engagements, and capturing 20 vessels. The frigate earned its nickname during a battle on August 19, 1812, when shots from HMS Guerriere bounced off its thick oak hull as if it were iron. Retired from combat in 1815, the Constitution was rescued from destruction when Oliver Wendell Holmes's poem "Old Ironsides" launched a preservation movement in 1830. The frigate was completely overhauled for its bicentennial in 1997, when it sailed under its own power for the first time since 1881, drawing international attention. Tugs tow the Constitution into the harbor every Fourth of July for its celebratory "turnaround cruise", and for occasional events around the harbor. If you see TV helicopters circling over the water, wander down and take a look. Adjacent to the ship, National Park Service rangers staff the Charlestown Navy Yard Visitor Center (tel. 617/242-5601) and give free 1-hour guided tours of the base. To continue on the Freedom Trail: Walk straight ahead to the museum entrance. Trailing Off - If you don't feel like retracing your steps at the end of the Freedom Trail, you have two public transit options. Return to the Charlestown Navy Yard for the ferry to Long Wharf, which leaves every half-hour from 6:45am to 8:15pm on weekdays (every 15 min. 6:45-9:15am and 3:45-6:45pm), and every half-hour on the quarter-hour from 10:15am to 6:15pm on weekends. The 10-minute trip costs $1.70 (or show your 7-day LinkPass), and the dock is an easy walk from "Old Ironsides". Alternatively, walk to the foot of the hill, on Main Street, take bus no. 92 or 93 to Haymarket (Green or Orange Line).
