Owner description: 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.

Had a super cup of tea in the very English tea room which forms part of the museum although did not do the tour we heard much of what was going on and all came out really enthused.

Hubby and I really enjoyed our tour. Old history buffs that we are we actually learned a few things. Definately go! Joining in makes the tour all that more enjoyable.

This was a fun and informative museum, our children really enjoyed it too and learnt a lot about the history of the tea party. It was an interactive experience, people were encouraged to take part though not in an intimidating or pushy way.

it was really cool to be where the Boston Tea Party happened. There is a gift shop and you can take the tour but you don't have to. If you go to the Tea House, you can get tea and scone and sit outside and you can actually see/hear the tours going on. I am sure the actual tour is worth it but if you are on a budget, it is not necessary.
