They give shows periodically, but we missed it. A nice gift shop, and a place to get snacks and coffee/chocolate and go into another room, sit and relax.

Definitely a stop worth taking on the Freedom Trail. I didn't do the full tour because of showing up as the last tour started but it was still an fun stop. Museum is in a scenic area of Boston and has a large gift shop....More

Went for tour and had a great time. The actor portraying John Adams was hilarious along with the others. Enjoyed and highly recommend.

A unique museum where you become part of the exhibition. Not only did you join in with the actors, but also learned about the history of the place. The tea in the cafe was really nice also. Well worth a visit

The “barking crab” was extremely popular when I was in Boston. A second popular restaurant was “the daily catch seaport.” Neither did I try...but the amount of people at both was mostly local.

I think it's feasible to access the boat with a wheelchair or a similar device, but you might not find it easy to manoeuvre on to/on the ship. If should have someone with you who can lift it and move it by hand.
