From the theatrical performers, the explanation of history in a different and innovative way leads to a lot to gain from as an experience for the trip. And throwing tea into the harbor wasn’t so bad either

We were all amazed when King George and Sam Adams came alive in their portraits. Such a nice surprise. Great combo of outdoor and indoor activities to keep a 9, almost 7, 71 and 66 yr old engaged. We all left with some memorable Colonial days’ expressions of affirmation and condemnation.

My 10 yr old daughter had learned about the Boston Tea Party I’m school and it came to life for her! The ticketing process was easy and the staff at the venue was so amazing!! A fun and entertaining way to bring history to life. I couldn’t help thinking that this would be a great way to teach children any history. The actors were realistic, fun and entertaining. A must see!!

Boston Tea Party - An Unexpected Fun Tour!
Anirudh_S
, Dec 2021
When I booked the Boston Tea Party Museum Tour, I thought it would be just a casual stroll through the museum. But it turned out to be quite a surprise! From the very beginning, all the actors (sorry I am bad with names!) were amazing. From the reenactment of the town meeting to the very end of this one hour romp through boston's history was fun and informative. Especially I liked the enthusiasm of the lady who welcomed us to the whole experience as well as the lady on the ship (she was funny). If you are travelling to Boston..you should experience the reenactement of the day when the Tea Party happened!
