USS Constitution comes alive through the Museum’s extraordinary collection.


These tangible objects and records draw us closer to the key moments and individuals in the ship’s legendary history. By collecting and caring for these objects, the Museum preserves authentic connections to “Old Ironsides” so that future generations can explore the many inspiring stories of Constitution and her crew. With over two hundred years of history, the Museum is always uncovering new pieces of “Old Ironsides”’ past.

As we learn more about the ship’s legacy, the Commodores Fund allows us to bid confidently whenever these extraordinary connections to Constitution come up at auction and bring them home to the Museum – where they belong. The collection is the heart of the Museum’s mission and the Commodores Fund is instrumental to its stewardship and growth.
