All visitors to USS Constitution are required to pass through a security screening, show federal or state photo identification, such as a driver’s license or passport, and wear a face covering. Visitors under the age of 18 do not require a photo identification card, but are required to go through the screening process and wear a face mask. Similar to airport security, visitors will be asked to remove bulky articles of clothing such as jackets, all jewelry, watches, belts, and all bags, luggage, or backpacks to allow the item to be examined.
The Museum is committed to accessibility for all visitors. The Museum’s two-floors of exhibits are physically accessible to walkers, wheelchairs, scooters, and strollers. Service animals are welcome, but must be under the control of the owner at all times. An assistive listening system is available for our introductory film, the Nation’s Ship.
Maintained in its 1812-era configuration, access to USS Constitution is limited to visitors who can safely walk aboard the Ship’s top (spar) deck unassisted. Access to the below decks requires climbing and descending steep ladder-like steps. Wheelchairs, walkers, scooters, and strollers are not allowed on board and must be left on the pier while touring the ship.
Visitors with service animals are authorized to tour the top (spar) deck of the Ship. Though not required by law, proof of the service animal’s status as a verified service animal makes the security screening procedure more efficient. Service animals must be on a leash or harness and under control of the owner at all times.
