The U.S.S. Constitution, the world’s oldest commissioned battleship, will reopen to the public this Saturday, September 2, after two and a half years of repairs.

Children and those adults with a valid federal or state photo ID will be able to tour the ship for free.

The Constitution, which first weighed anchor in 1797 and returned to the water post-repairs only this July, will be open every day until September 11 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.

It will be closed September 11, and will reopen afterward from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesday through Sunday.

And, once visitors are done touring the battleship itself, they can check out the nearby Constitution museum.

And, when they’re done with that, how about a two-hour tour of surrounding Charlestown?
