This was by our hotel so we checked it out. It is really neat but probably more appropriate for older children than my grandkids (all under 6).

Great videos, nice tour of a ship, fun acting, and very informative! We loved the shop and the tea is great! We also had sandwiches for lunch and sampled the historic teas. My favorite was the turkey dinner sandwich!

It was very interactive and the actors and actresses were really good. It's more than just walking through the ship. I would say more but I don't want to ruin the surprise.

Knowing nothing about the Boston Tea Party, I can firmly say I was very well educated by this experience, but in a very fun way! The re-enactment actors are all so well trained and enthusiastic. I truly enjoyed every moment, with special mention to Mary-Anne...More

This was a great experience. It was a theatrical walk through history with an opportunity to "throw tea into the harbour." The whole experience takes about and hour.

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.

We bought tickets when we arrived but later noticed that there were coupon codes online that we could have used.
