Overview

Mission Statement

The USS Constitution 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 positive, memorable experiences for both children and adults through scholarship and innovation as we share CONSTITUTION's contributions with a global audience.


Background Statement

The USS Constitution Museum interprets the active-duty US Navy vessel and national historic landmark, USS Constitution, America’s Ship of State. A private, non-profit established in 1972, the Museum serves as the memory and educational voice of USS Constitution. The Museum shares the stories of “Old Ironsides” and her historic crew through hands-on, minds-on programs and exhibitions that bring the past to life for more than 350,000 visitors each year. Our educational programs serve 10,000 preschool through high school students annually and our extensive teacher resources offer the latest in research and scholarship and make history relevant for today’s students. The Museum’s nationally significant collection of more than 10,000 artifacts and archival material spans the 216-year career of the Ship. Accredited by the American Alliance of Museums, the Museum has an admission by donation policy ensuring all visitors access to our shared heritage. The Museum is located on Boston’s Freedom Trail and is accessible by car, on foot, by public transportation and by water shuttle. The Museum is a leader in innovative exhibit techniques that engage all ages in learning together. During the past five years, the Museum’s Family Learning Project and the A Sailor’s Life for Me online game and educator resources have received national awards and recognition. In May 2011, the Museum became the first Smithsonian Institution Affiliate in Boston. No other museum has the collection or the expertise to tell the Constitution’s story with such depth or in such an engaging way.  As one visited reviewed the Museum, “Someone with an education background helped put this museum together! It has activities and exhibits that appeal to ALL the members of the family!



 

 


Impact Statement

Accomplishments
1. Museum welcomed a record setting 528,233 visitors through our doors in 2016.

2. To interpret CONSTITUTION’s restoration the Museum created a restoration blog and mounted a camera overlooking the dry dock. Visitors can access the blog and ConstitutionCamera 24/7 through our new website www.usscm.org/restoration. Camera pictures update every 20 minutes.

3. In April 2016, the Museum opened its newest exhibit, Forest to Frigate. Forest to Frigate interprets the Ship’s construction through the point of view of the people who designed, built, and outfitted her in the 1790’s.

2016 Goals & Objectives

1. Investing in the Museum’s Future: Create a welcoming environment that serves guests, preserves artifacts, and provides staff and volunteers with an efficient work environment.

a) Re-evaluate and prioritize best use of the theater b) Enhance collaborative interpretation of CONSTITUTION’s restoration with Navy Yard partners

2. Serving as the Educational Voice of “Old Ironsides: Support students & teachers by presenting sound scholarship through innovative techniques & many learning styles to enhance appreciation of USS Constitution.

a) Collaborate with National Park Service to provide free school programs for Boston Public Schools at the Museum b) Seek sponsorship for youth group visits and to support military groups/families.

3. Enhance the Museum Experience: Increase awareness of Constitution’s innovative design, construction & preservation through engaging and memorable hands-on experiences.

a) Open Forest to Frigate exhibit and pilot complementary programs. B) Collect and analyze data. c) Provide opportunities for visitors to experiment with STEM concepts

 


Needs Statement

In 2015, USS Constitution entered the dry dock for the first time in twenty years. The restoration offers a unique opportunity to appreciate the remarkable structure of “Old Ironsides”  and the great sense of pride that went into building a wooden ship as strong as iron! Individual, corporate and foundation support needed to successfully complete projects. Contact the Museum for information on available sponsorship and naming opportunities.


Education Center - Estimated budget: $950,000 - Raised $470,000 as of 9-30-2016. In today’s tech savvy, social media driven society, the theater is a black and white TV. We envision transforming the theater in to a dynamic education center for students of all ages. Upgrades include: 1) new sound, projection, and lighting systems, 2) improved HVAC/climate control   3) expanded space for program, exhibit, and function use. 4) flexible classroom space for enhanced school program 5)foldable dividing wall to allow students and visitors to use center simultaneously.

Conservation funds for collections artifacts – Estimated budget $25,000. The Museum would like to create a fund for ensuring the safe and secure preservation of the thousands of artifacts in its collections.


 


CEO Statement

"Who you are today is rooted in your past. Whether you embrace it or build upon it, or choose to chart a different course - your past is fundamental to you future.  The same is true for a nation and what few realize today is that much of our country's common identity was born out of the War of 1812.  "Old Ironsides" and the Star Spangled Banner are two tremendous national icons that embody the American spirit.  It was during the War of 1812 that CONSTITUTION's victories helped make us a country to be recognized, reckoned with and respected. CONSTITUTION emerged undefeated, and the lessons she embodies still resonate today. It was the ordinary individuals working together on the decks of "Old Ironsides" who achieved extraordinary things. History at the USS Constitution Museum is a memorable experience where visitors step into the shoes of sailors and realize that we are the same as our historic counterparts just separated by time. - Anne Grimes Rand, President

Forest to Frigate

The Discovery Center engages ALL ages in conversation and exploration of USS CONSTITUTION and the War of 1812. The first person text, interactive elements, imagery, and family friendly programs all convey the theme, One Ship, One Crew, One Nation. The flexible program space provides for history spotlight presentations, interpretive programs, and family fun days. The Discovery Center serves as a learning lab for school programs for preschool through high school students.

Impact

The Impact tab is a section on the Giving Common added in October 2013; as such the majority of nonprofits have not yet had the chance to complete this voluntary section. The purpose of the Impact section is to ask five deceptively simple questions that require reflection and promote communication about what really matters – results. The goal is to encourage strategic thinking about how a nonprofit will achieve its goals. The following Impact questions are being completed by nonprofits slowly, thoughtfully and at the right time for their respective organizations to ensure the most accurate information possible.


1. What is your organization aiming to accomplish?

--

2. What are your strategies for making this happen?

--

3. What are your organization’s capabilities for doing this?

--

4. How will your organization know if you are making progress?

--

5. What have and haven’t you accomplished so far?
