Overview

    What to Expect
    This guided tour of the Boston Tea Party Ships and Museum ushers visitors through virtual exhibits, authentically restored tea ships, and traditional Boston museum exhibits. The tour provides the opportunity to participate in, explore, and learn about the people, events, and consequences that led up to the American Revolution—all in the order in which they occurred back in 1773. Get a sense of what life was like in 18th-century Boston.

    This floating museum features actors in period dress, interactive exhibits, authentically restored tea ships and a gripping, multi-sensory documentary entitled “Let it Begin Here.” Meet the colonists, explore the ships and even dump tea overboard just as the Sons of Liberty did.

    At the Meeting House, hear the story of the night of December 16, 1773, and get ready to dump tea alongside the patriots. There are two authentically restored tea ships—the Eleanor and the Beaver.

    Inside the museum is a high-definition, 3D holographic at Griffin’s Wharf that makes visitors feel like they are on a Boston street in 1773. See the Robinson Half Chest, one of only two of the original tea chests that was dumped into the Boston Harbor that night.

    I loved the way things were enacted to make them look real! Also, they will provide each visitor a character, so that you can assume yourself a person from the eighteenth century, as if you are a significant part of the historical event of Boston Tea Party!

    My family and I had a fun time at this unique museum. It's engaging and interactive, and you can participate as little or as much as you want. In this museum, you are taken through the different phases of the Boston Tea Party--from a town meeting full of concerned colonists to

    Museum staff in costume and in character from the moment we arrived. Great fun, great delivery, great way to bring the history alive and find out even more about the events. Enjoyed chucking the tea over the side (even though it was on a rope)!!

    We were undecided about embarking on this tour because we thought it was a bit pricey and maybe a little corny but, after taking the plunge, we were glad we did. It was a professional re-enactment of events that led up toThe Revolution encouraging participation from all

    Excellent! I took the tour based on a Trolley driver’s recommendation. There is a discount with the trolly ticket. It was a wonderful experience with professional actors, holograms, a replica of the ship which we toured and emotional film which does show a battle scene. I
