Associate Members - Naval, Maritime and Military Organizations

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.

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, educational non-profit welcomes over 400,000 visitors each year and provides a hands-on, minds-on environment where inter-generational groups can have fun while learning and exploring history together. The USS Constitution Museum’s mission is to engage all ages in the story of “Old Ironsides” to spark excitement about maritime heritage, naval service, and the American experience.

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.
