On an exceedingly hot day, we visited the museum and were able to take advantage of a BOGO deal for Boston residents. There was quite a bit of history relayed, but in a fun/modern way. Some history purists many bemoan the Disneyfication, but I believe you have to meet the visitor where they are. The members of the group seemed delighted with the technology used to tell the Tea Party story, as was I. I thought the interpreters were very good (our main guide was Sarah Fulton) - their deliveries were fresh and funny. The movie at the end was particularly well done. It was all too easy to imagine how it must have felt to face the might of the British Army. I got a little teary-eyed. The museum had many books in case one wants to learn further in addition to many cute trinkets and finer items. I think it is a very good family museum, especially as the Children's Museum is so close by.
