At the Boston Tea Party Ships and Museum, you can be a part of the famous event that forever changed the course of American History! It’s more than a stroll through historic artifacts – it’s an adventure! Located on the Congress Street Bridge in Boston, Massachusetts, this floating museum is unlike anything you’ve ever experienced before. Live actors, high-tech, interactive exhibits, authentically restored tea ships and the stirring, multi-sensory documentary “Let it Begin Here,” are just a taste of what you’ll see, hear and feel. Meet the colonists, explore the ships and dump tea overboard just as the Sons of Liberty did on that fateful night of December 16, 1773. Stop in at Abigail’s Tea Room for teatime and visit the Gift Shop for special souvenirs. It’s educational, entertaining and enlightening — an experience not to be missed by adults and children of all ages. Your tour of the Boston Tea Party Ships and Museum will last approximately one hour and will take you through a variety of displays that are interconnected. The tour is designed to give you the opportunity to participate, explore and learn about the people, events and consequences that led up to the American Revolution in the order in which they actually occurred more than 230 years ago.

We enjoyed our colonial leader and the stories he shared. It was a fun and informative tour about the "tea party", but it also included information regarding the Revolutionary War. And since I love tea, I enjoyed the tea tasting at Abigail's Tea Room afterwards.

This tour involves actors re-enacting parts of the infamous Boston Tea Party on the decks of replica ships. The movie depicting Paul Revere's famous midnight ride and the subsequent battle is excellent. This is fun and really interesting

The whole "experience" was a little corny. The information is basic. I think it would be good for kids who were 10-12 years old. As a history buff, I did not learn much. Everything that was communicated was accurate though.

If you want to re-live the beginning of our freedom from the British, visit the Boston Tea Party Ship & museum. It's an awesome feeling to stand on the ship, throw tea overboard & listen to our story.

We used our Hop on Hop off ticked and got a discount on this attraction. It is very well done with actors playing the parts. Their knowledge of history is second to none. The boats were amazing. The tour lasts for 1 hour 15 minutes.

Will this be a tour that can be taken during rainy weather? We're coming up to Boston tomorrow, so looking at options to do if it rains, which is in the forecast.

Yes, most of the tour is inside. The 15 or so minutes on the ship are outside, but with a raincoat you'll be fine
