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 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!!!!

This museum was wonderful for the whole family (ages 5, 9, 13, 15, 41, 43). So interactive. The little ones loved the play-acting and throwing the tea off the ship. The bigger ones loved the technology used in the later parts of the museum to tell the history. This is one of my favorite museums ever. So well designed and thoughtful!

It was very interactive. You to experience the meeting prior to the tossing of tea. The actors were very good and took their parts seriously. They didn't explain the disguises or that the plan was not openly announced. Throwing tea was fun for pictures. The museum and video were very interesting.
