Boston Tea Party Ships And Museum Reviews & Ratings
Cute little spot to explore. You don’t have to pay to explore the inside store. You only have to pay to get on the ship - which you can view for free on the outside. Everyone plays their parts and dresses up. Super cute. Here’s my best friend and I on the ramp down to the ship :)
This is the most fun thing we have done on our trip to Boston! The employees were fun and really helped us learn more about the Boston Tea Party. My 7 year old loved it too! We thought it could be a nice touch to serve a little complimentary tea after the video. Highly recommend!
This was one of the more expensive tours we did during our trip to Boston, but it was well worth it. The cast was enthusiastic and fun, we got to throw some tea overboard and then we were taken inside to see the museum. There was also a 12-minute video that was very well done. And they have the best gift shop in Boston.
Brought my family of four here (12 year old boy, 6 year old boy, and two adults) last Thursday, Oct 3rd during our trip to Boston. At the start of the tour, each person is given a card with the name of a person that took part in the Boston Tea Party and a short description of the individual. You also receive a feather to contribute to your "disguise" for when it's time to "raid" the ship. The tour starts in the meeting room with a reinactment and lots of participation from the patrons. It then moves on to the ship where everyone gets a chance to throw a box of "tea" in the harbor. Then a quick tour of the ship and back on to the dock where there's a pulley system that allows you to get the feel of what it was like to pull 35 lbs of tea up the ships like they did on that night. The actors are very knowledgeable, never break character, and include a good bit of humor throughout the entire tour. The tour then goes inside the museum where there is a short scene done with holograms and you can see a genuine tea box salvaged after being found following the Boston Tea Party. Definitely make sure you take time to go to Abigail's Tea Room after for baked goodies and to taste the teas that were dumped into the harbor. Overall an excellent experience. My kids had fun and both my husband and I thoroughly enjoyed it.
Absolutely top notch historical museum to take the entire family to. Besides the replica ship from back in the 1700's, the other amazing highlight of the tour was the actual tea crate that was supposedly part of the actual Boston Tea Party. I don't know how they actually authenticate it, but if it is legit, it is just incredible and awesome.
