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.

Audience participates in reenactment of Town Meeting where uprising was organized. Tour the ship and reenact throwing the tea overboard. The actors are excellent, informative, and a lot of FUN! An informative movie is shown. Very enjoyable and I recommend it.

Very informative and the kids liked the period characters. A little lame for older teens, but they actually learned quite a bit.

Our hop on hop off ticket gave us free access to this museum - and we are so glad we took advantage of this offer.
What a great place for visitors of all ages with interactive action and displays which all the family will enjoy.
Actual tour takes about an hour which is time well spent.
Well done to all participants at this museum!

This floating museum is completely different to the normal museum you're used to. Using actors and videos you'll learn a lot without even relishing. The actors are fantastic (Sally Hughes deserves a special mention) and make the whole experience a lot of fun. Definitely recommended.
