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.

Brilliant! We went early in the morning for the first session and although pricey the whole experience was led by real experts who brought history to life. Don't forget to try the tea shop afterwards where there are costumed experts to answer any questions - this was a welcome rest and added to the whole thing. A must in Boston.

Brilliant. Well acted, informative, crowd interaction... and a feather. The smallest point is you do get rushed through the small museum area which would have been good to read a few biogs of the paintings

Very informative. The tea box saved by the family that came from the ship was interesting. All very good but would have been nice to have some sitting at section where the women were on hologram. By that time we had been standing for a long time and being older it would have been nice to have a sitting area.
