Relive the most important event leading up to the American Revolution on this tour of the Boston Tea Party Ships and Museum. Follow your guide and spend the next hour on a journey back in time to the famous Boston Tea Party, an incident that changed the course of American history. It’s more than a stroll through historic artifacts, though. It’s truly one of the top-rated museums in the city of Boston. There are interactive exhibits, authentically restored tea ships and a gripping, multi-sensory documentary that’s not to be missed.
  • Admission to the Boston Tea Party Ships and Museum
  • Get an in-depth look at the events leading up to the Boston Tea Party
  • Learn how the Boston Tea Party kick-started the American Revolution
  • Enjoy a comprehensive experience that combines historic artifacts with cutting-edge technology
  • Explore one of the tall ships and see one of the two remaining tea chests from the Boston Tea Party
This one hour guided 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.

Great for kids and adults
The actors are fantastic - engaging and very well informed. My two 10 year olds and 12 year old said it was "awesome", and my husband and I learned a great deal.

History at it's Best
This was a great interactive museum as you became part of the Boston Tea Party event. We loved all this establishment had to offer. History relived for adults and children.
Terrific Tea Party!
We thoroughly enjoyed this Boston experience! A highlight of our trip! The tour was an hour, as advertised. The actors were well prepared. The activity provided opportunities to sit, walk through the replica, and participate to the extent individuals desired. The public restroom was clean, and there was no pressure to purchase tea or souvenirs in the lovely tea room or shop.
This tour lasted about 45 minutes. It was fun, but not anything super special. All in all, I think it was a little pricey for what we got.
Having fun!
This was a great experience and the characters/actors were amazing. They got you involved and made it fun. Highly recommend. Jo Texas

Had a great experience on an extremely cold day! There were only 3 of us on a day the harbor was actually frozen, but we still got to throw the tea boxes overboard AND all the guides were enthusiastic and put on a GREAT show. It was full of well presented and informative exhibits and even a well produced movie. I even felt pretty patriotic by the end! Great family fun.
