Full description

Considered the most important event that led to the American Revolution, the Boston Tea Party was part of a resistance movement in British America. Be part of this event that changed history on an interactive tour. Meet live characters, see replica ships, and learn about the people involved.

Take a handbill from one of the colonists and find out what part you’ll play. In the meeting house, hear the story of the night of December 16, 1773 and receive your own mohawk disguise before the march to Griffin's Wharf begins. Experience the thrill of throwing a crate of tea into the sea and explore the replica ships that recreate the original vessels from the 18th century. Inside the museum, travel back in time with 3D holographic characters and watch British soldiers and colonial patriots argue right before your eyes. Then experience the battle inside the giant wraparound theater for a complete history lesson.

The whole family loved the Boston Tea party ship and museum tour! We had 4 adults and 3 kids ranging in age from 9 and 12. The kids all had a turn casting tea into the harbor and hearing about the history of the events leading up to and after the tea party. It was engaging and interactive. We felt we were part of it all. Thanks for a great time.

The Boston Tea Party was an amazing experience! They got every person involved, including children. It was one of the highlights of our trip. The staff were excellent, friendly, knowledgeable, inviting, entertaining, and really got into their roles - you can see the passion in what they do! 10/10 very highly recommend!

The whole thing! Loved that it was interactive, that the location of the tour was at the place The Boston Tea Party actually happened and LOVED that they have teas similar to those that were thrown overboard for purchase! Great pictures of a reenactment of an event in history that the kids are better able to understand in this way! Don't miss this!!!!
