This was the highlight of my trip. Every child in America should come here. Great for adults, too! Very well done. Interactive and state of the art exhibits.

This was one of my favorite things we saw in Boston! I was worried it might be boring but it was far from it! An interactive experience, your guides stay in character circa 1773 the whole trip. With those around you hissing or “Huzzah-ing”, you’ll...More

Very entertaining and informative. Loved getting to throw “tea” overboard. Tea shop with tea tastings was fun.

I was a bit leary on attending this event, especially when I saw the cost. I think it was $27USD. However, I found the actors to be excellent in their presentation of the events that took place and it was extremely interesting and educational. I...More

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.
