What You Can Expect

Admission to Boston Tea Party Ships and Museum

Tall Ships in Boston

This tour of the Boston Tea Party Ships and Museum ushers visitors through virtual exhibits, authentically restored tea ships and traditional Boston museum exhibits. The tour provides the opportunity to participate in, explore and learn about the people, events and consequences that led up to the American Revolution — all in the order in which they occurred back in 1773. Get a sense of what life was like in 18th-century Boston.

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.

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 was the high light of our trip. The multi media presentation, the acting crew, the group participation made this an experience to remember. We have talked many times about this part of our trip and would go back again. Thanks for doing a great job on this.
