Join a Seafaring Crew!

July 1, 2019 - July 7, 2019

USS Constitution’s crew is looking for new recruits; could it be you? Find out whether or not you have what it takes to be a sailor at the USS Constitution Museum during Boston Harborfest, one of the country’s largest Fourth of July festivals. Hands-on, minds-on exhibits and programs will demonstrate and encourage visitors of all ages to experience the life of a Navy sailor. Furl a sail, scrub the decks, and get marked with a (temporary) tattoo throughout Harborfest and beyond!

Letters to Our Troops
Daily, 9:00-6:00
Over 2.2 million men and women serve in the United States’ armed forces. Show your support for their dedication, sacrifice, and service by writing a letter today. The Museum, partnered with the Operation Gratitude, will distribute the letters.

Life at Sea
Daily, 10:00-12:00
Are you willing to eat a biscuit as hard as a brick? Discover what is for lunch in this delicious program about the early sailor’s daily diet.

Marked for Life
Daily, 1:00-4:00
Learn the history of sailors’ tattoos and mark yourself with a temporary tattoo. Tattoos cost between $1 and $2. Proceeds help support the Museum’s educational programs.

Meet Today’s Crew
July 4, 9:00-6:00
Get a sneak peek into the Museum’s newest exhibit – Meet Today’s Crew. As the oldest commissioned warship afloat in the world, USS Constitution has nearly 90 active duty men and women that currently serve aboard her. Featuring video interviews, you will hear directly and candidly from the crew about why they joined the Navy, what they like best about serving on “Old Ironsides,” and where they hope to go next.

Built to Win
July 4, 10:00-2:00
Are you ready for a challenge? While USS Constitution is out in Boston Harbor, build your own mini-tinfoil boat and sail it down our 8-foot racetrack in this hands-on family program.
