USS Constitution Restoration Timelapse Video

Watch the amazing progress being made aboard USS Constitution as her 2015-2017 restoration comes to a close! Without much snow this winter to slow down progress, the restoration crew expects the ship to refloat in July. Look closely and you will see the shiny copper sheathing going on her hull. If you had the chance to sign a copper sheet in the Museum, your name is on one of the 3,400 sheets that will protect “Old Ironsides”‘ hull for another twenty years. As Constitution gets ready for a new chapter, support of the Annual Fund enables the Museum to keep our doors open to all.
