What You Can Expect
This floating museum features actors in period dress, interactive exhibits, authentically restored tea ships and a gripping, multi-sensory documentary entitled “Let it Begin Here.” Meet the colonists, explore the ships and even dump tea overboard just as the Sons of Liberty did.
At the Meeting House, hear the story of the night of December 16, 1773, and get ready to dump tea alongside the patriots. There are two authentically restored tea ships — the Eleanor and the Beaver.
Inside the museum is a high-definition, 3D holographic at Griffin’s Wharf that makes visitors feel like they are on a Boston street in 1773. See the Robinson Half Chest, one of only two of the original tea chests that was dumped into the Boston Harbor that night.
This tour was one of the best in Boston. So well done and interactive for kids. Love the holograms. KR, San Marcos, TX
Engaging for kids and adults alike. I highly recommend this tour!
This was great. My wife never really understood all of the events of that part of our history. She does now and loved it. She even threw the tea in! Huzzah! Lot's of fun...a must do if in Boston.
It was more than what I had expected! The performers did an fantastic job and were very informative. Everyone was helpful and friendly. I would do it again whenever in Boston.
We enjoyed this Very much! The guides were witty, the boats were neat, and the special effects in the movie and hologram rooms were awesome. This is a great taste of the political climate of Boston leading up to the Revolution. Me and my wife enjoyed it, and when we have kids some day we will take them here! The tea and scones afterward were exceptional - we might go back just for that!
I am not as big a history fan as my husband, but we cannot stop telling everyone about how cool this museum experience was. It's so interactive, the staff put on an excellent show, and it's easy to stay engaged in the history lesson while learning tid bits about the lives of actual participants of the Boston Tea Party. Highly recommend for everyone, including childless 20-somethings like ourselves.
This was one of the best tours in all of Boston.. Great for the whole family!
A well-staged intro to one of Boston's most notorious historical events. The actor/instructors were both entertaining and highly informative. The tearoom was also a pleasant break from the usual fast-food snack opportunities around the area. Our family left educated, amused, and quenched!
This tour was great..........our guide Priscilla was so enthusiastic and knowledgeable about her subject matter that she really made you feel like you were in the time she was depicting.................I would recommend this tour to anyone..........
A very informative and entertaining experience. Well worth the money. we were made to feel very welcome and part of the experience.
