Restoring an Icon: Making “Old Ironsides” New
See USS Constitution like you have never seen her before. From 2015-2017 Constitution is in dry dock for her first major restoration in over twenty years. This event is a unique opportunity to appreciate the remarkable structure of “Old Ironsides” and to see an active shipyard with preservation work underway.
Visit often for the latest behind-the-scenes action as Constitution is out of the water in Dry Dock 1, just steps outside the USS Constitution Museum’s front doors. Witness the ship’s structure, revealed plank by plank, as skilled craftspeople work to preserve and make “Old Ironsides” new again.
