This is a masterclass in how to create a tourist attraction! I won’t tell you all about it as that would spoil it for you but suffice to say we were thoroughly entertained and engaged. Extremely professional at all levels, with brilliant presenters. More expensive...More

Interesting and informative. A great look back in history to the Boston tea party and what led up to the chain of events that occurred. Very picturesque and well worth it. I would highly recommend this to anyone coming to Boston.

My 10-year-old daughter and I loved the Tea Party experience! The character actors were enthusiastic and really brought history to life. So many fun, unexpected experiences within the museum tour. Highly recommend for the entire family.

We were a group of 4 adults and 4 young children, all aged almost 7 and younger. Since the two oldest are home schooled, their mother prepared them by reading several picture books about the events of the American Revolution and by showing them episodes...More

This place is well worth it. Friendly and informative staff take you on a wonderful immersive tour. The ships are okay but lack extras.

We had a lovely time here. I'd only visit if you are interested in the history of Boston and it's ties many years ago with England. It is a guided tour, so if you weren't interested you would soon be bored as it lasted about...More

I believe that is one of the only days they close. It would be a shame for you to miss this event as it is well worth the visit. You feel as if you have been transported back in time. Do try to fit it in another day.
