ver wonder i a sailor’s lie is or you? Visitors to “All Hands on Deck: A Sailor’s Lie in 1812,” the USS Constitution Museum’s newest exhibit, can fnd out. Designed to be bothhands-on and minds-on, the exhibit allows amilies to scrub a deck, swing in a hammock, fre a cannon, and url a sail as they learn about history together. “All Hands on Deck” is the culmination o years o researchinto the lives and experiences o the men who served on board USS 
at the moment when the ship earned her nickname, “Old Ironsides,” and became a national symbol that endures today as one o Boston’s most amous attractions.
