Associate Members - Other Museums and For-profit Ships

HNSA Associate Members are organizations whose objectives are compatible with the objectives of the Historic Naval Ships Association. Examples are historic ships not yet open to the public, firms who supply goods and services to Fleet Members, for-profit tourist attractions such as ship excursion lines, and non-profit organizations working to obtain historic naval ships for siting and display as museum vessels.

HNSA encourages its Fleet Members to give preference to the products and services offered by its Associate Member vendors and suppliers. It also advises Fleet Members to make their own decisions regarding the purchase, employment or other use of the products and services offered by its Associate Members. HNSA incurs no liability and assumes no responsibility for problems that may occur prior to, during or after an Associate Member has supplied a product or performed a service in support of a Fleet Member.

If you are interested in becoming an associate member, contact Dr. William Cogar at executivedirector@hnsa.org

The Baltimore & Chesapeake Steamboat Company, Inc. (B&CSC), founded in 2004 and a year later incorporated as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit educational organization, preserves, interprets and supports industrial maritime heritage efforts throughout the Port of Baltimore and the Chesapeake Bay Region.

The group participates in or sponsors a variety of events, lectures, field trips around waterways and hosts other maritime-related programs throughout the year.  It serves as an active member organization of the Baltimore Port Alliance, was a key player in the Port of Baltimore’s Tricentennial Celebrations and helped coordinate the Steamship Historical Society of America’s first-ever ‘Shiposium on maritime preservation aboard the world-famous Nuclear Ship SAVANNAH.  We are an annual sponsor of National Maritime Day.  Our all-volunteer members Go Places, Do Things and Make Things Happen That Make a Difference!

B&CSC acquired its first historic vessel, the 1940 M/V CHARLES D. GAITHER, in 2011.  The GAITHER represents the first all-steel patrol vessel to be placed into service with Baltimore City Police Department’s fleet and later with the City’s Fire Department scoring a combined service history exceeding three decades.

The organization continues to contribute materially to preservation efforts involving the 1906 Steam Tug BALTIMORE, the oldest hand-fired, coal-burning steam tugboat (with an operational power plant) in all of North America.  Tug BALTIMORE is a National Historic Landmark.

Baltimore & Chesapeake Steamboat Company’s CHARLES D. GAITHER is a recognized historic vessel with the United States Maritime Administration. All donations to the B&CSC are tax deductible to the full extent of the law.

Why do we exist?  Because we believe that history tends to lose its way when pieces of the puzzle are allowed to stray.  That’s why you should give the B&CSC a second look.

No matter your present situation in life, sign on with our Cyber Fleet of Friends.  You can do so right from your computer screen and/or by putting a moving deck beneath your feet.  Make the Baltimore & Chesapeake Steamboat Company your ‘ships’ company’ of mates and friends.

The Mission of the Pritzker Military Museum and Library is to acquire and maintain an accessible collection of materials and develop appropriate programs focusing on the Citizen Soldier in the preservation of democracy.  Colonel J.N. Pritzker, IL ARNG (Retired), founder of the Pritzker Military Museum & Library, assembled a major collection of books and related materials on military history, with a particular focus on the concept of the Citizen Soldier in America. Today, building upon that foundation through the generosity of private donors, the Pritzker Military Museum & Library has become a non-partisan research organization that attempts to increase the public understanding of military history and the sacrifices made by the men and women who have served.

In a democratic society, it is important for people of all viewpoints to have an open, public forum to discuss the past, present, and future of the military. Through its collection and its programs, the Museum & Library is dedicated to serving as a forum for those discussions and preserving them for future generations. Since opening in 2003, the Museum & Library has hosted more than 400 events featuring the country’s most acclaimed authors, historians, journalists, and scholars.

This group is working to open U-475 to the general public. The submarine is available by special arrangement to school groups, private functions, and TV and film units. 

About the Sub Foxtrot B-39 Hunter Killer Class Submarine: Foxtrot B-39 (U 475) was built in 1967, and used specifically for training foreign submariners – Libyan, Cuban and Indian.

She was in active service with the Russian Baltic Fleet until April 1, 1994, having spent 27 years in active service. The vessel arrived in London from the naval base in Riga, Latvia, in July 1994 under the command of its Captain Vitalij Burda who bid official farewell to his second home for the last 23 years. She was at Long’s Wharf, Thames Barrier until 1998 and then moved to Folkestone.

The submarine is currently moored in the middle of the river Medway at Strood, Kent adjacent to Rochester Bridge.

Celebrating its 40th year, the USS Constitution Museum serves as the memory and educational voice of USS Constitution by collecting, preserving, and interpreting the stories of “Old Ironsides” and those associated with her.  This award-winning, not-for-profit educational institution welcomes over 400,000 visitors each year and charges no admission fee.  The Museum provides an interactive, hands-on environment with innovative exhibitions. It is perfect for families and school groups seeking an enjoyable, educational experience where they can have fun while learning and exploring history together.

Located in the Charlestown Navy Yard, across from “Old Ironsides,” the USS Constitution Museum is a must see for everyone visiting Boston.  Hands-on, interactive galleries let families of all ages explore the legacy of USS Constitution, America’s Ship of State.  Swing in a hammock, furl a sail, holystone the deck, and face the enemy in battle when visiting the exhibit All Hands on Deck: A Sailor’s Life in 1812.  Learn the causes and impact of the War of 1812 on our nation in the 1812 Discovery Center.  Come explore the evidence and see how a young nation launched a legend in the Museum’s newest hands-on exhibit, Forest to Frigate.  Enter the 1790’s to follow the story from the forest in which “Old Ironsides’” timbers grew to her launch as a fully formed frigate.  Decide for yourself what kind of ship to build, meet men like Paul Revere who labored to bring her to life, and test your shipyard skills.

Mission: The USS Constitution Museum serves as the memory and educational voice of USS Constitution, by collecting, preserving, and interpreting the stories of “Old Ironsides” and the people associated with her. We seek to create a positive, memorable experience for both children and adults by inspiring within them a love for the freedom that Constitution symbolizes. We will share Constitution’s contributions with a global audience, and we will strive to be the best museum possible based on scholarship and innovative ways of sharing Constitution’s stories.

Vision: The USS Constitution Museum ensures that the stories of USS Constitution and those who shaped her history are never forgotten, always remain relevant, and inspire as many people as possible.

Strategy: The Museum will provide a hands-on, minds-on environment where inter-generational groups seeking an enjoyable, educational experience can have fun and learn as they explore history together.
