A must-do in Boston! My mother and I went here during our 'Week in Boston' trip, and it was so fun and informative! We really liked being able to throw the 'tea' overboard, and the inspiring video at the end of the experience. Plus, the tea room/gift shop is adorable and will put together.

It was incredible- characters in period costume re-enacting some of the scenes that happened prior to the Tea Party. The ship was amazing. Lots of fun- very historically accurate. Loved throwing the tea overboard. Gave you a real sense of what the colonists committed to- and the repercussions if they failed. Also had a lovely tea room following the tour - so fun! I would definitely recommend it to families/especially with children- actually anyone who wants to know more about our country's founding. Extremely well done!

The whole experience was amazing! We loved that it was interactive. From start to finish, we were never bored.The actors were spot on and fun. Each room brought the past to life, and told the story in outstanding fashion. The story of the box was something I had never heard, it was very moving. I would recommend this to anyone visiting Boston!!
