The USS Constitution, America’s oldest commissioned warship and an icon of the Charlestown Navy Yard, welcomes families aboard this weekend for an interactive educational program called “All Hands On Deck”. Young and old alike can learn about the lives of the sailors who worked this famous battleship from USS Constitution Musuem staff, and can participate in various activities. Kids will enjoy learning how to march like a Marine in a military procession – and demonstrations of period Naval memorabilia are sure to fascinate all ages.

Demonstrations, hands-on craft activities, and more will be held from May 26th to 28th, with the Musuem open from 9am to 6pm all three days. A new exploratory activity called “Mutinous Expedition: A Quest Based on Honest Truth” will be open to all as part of the weekend’s events.
