Boston Tea Party Ships And Museum, Boston Reviews
What a great experience, this is not your typical museum! The staff is all clothing of that time period, they're all very knowledge and pleasant! You begin by participating in a town hall meeting conducted by none other than John Adams himself, then heading to a replica ship of that time used to transport goods, you get to see the entire ship and get to throw "tea" into the harbor as the Bostonians so importantly did. Then there are a couple of surprised I won't spoil, but the learning experience ends in a second story tea parlor where you can do tastings if the teas that were actually traded on those ships, that was really the cherry on top of the pie!
This is an outstanding place, full of history and personal stories. The cast is talented, funny and friendly, but with a great sense of the story their telling. The ships are very cool to explore, and the museum is really worth going to. I would spoil the surprises but it's pretty cool what they've done here. My kids loved this stop. Abigail's Tea Room is really neat with historical baked goods and tea, as well as modern offerings. You can actually taste the same kind of tea that would have been thrown in Boston Harbour! It's really well done. There are historical games to play, like checkers and chess. The gift shop is one of the nicest and most complete in Boston. Of course there is tea, loose, bagged and blocks. But there's also books, reproduction documents, swords, tea sets, kids toys etc. It's lovely. This is a great place to start your exploration of revolutionary Boston, to get a good overview of places, people and timing. It's a 15 min walk to Boston Common or Faneuil Hall.
I was able to find this relative easy. I spent most of my day in the area. I had a great time here and recommended it to anyone in the area. The costumes and reenactments are great. The ships alone are worth going to see. The shop had plenty to buy and take home. It also is worth mentioning to have lunch and tea here. Great views all around.
One of our favorite historical museums!! Our children are ages 1, 8, 12, and 16 and all of them enjoyed the experience. There was something for each of them even at their different ages.(The one year old was in a hiking backpack so he was contained which made it much easier.) The actors and actresses did a wonderful job and made it so much fun! We were a little disappointed in the upstairs “Tea Room”, otherwise I would give 5 stars. Worth the time and money to visit!
One of my favorite museums we visited in Boston. The beginning was a lot of fun as you join in the “re-enactment” of the Boston Tea Party. The guides/actors were really fantastic and knowledgeable. However, once they bring you into the formal museum it becomes very ‘Disney-died’. Lots of movies and holograms and stuff. I would much rather see them display an actual museum instead of just one box and a lot of videos. Still, the beginning is lots of fun.
