The Boston Tea Party Ships and Museum (306 Congress St., Boston MA) is the perfect learning experience for any family.
What makes it stand out is the fact that not only does it have artifacts on display, but has also combined one of the most important events in U.S. history into an all-encompassing, multi-sensory experience.
Located on the Congress Street Bridge in Boston (306 Congress Street, Boston MA), the floating museum features live actors, high-tech, interactive exhibits, restored tea ships and also includes the “Let It Begin Here” documentary.
Families will get to meet colonists, explore the ships and even dump tea overboard just as the Sons of Liberty did on December 16, 1773. You can enjoy a steaming hot cup of tea at Abigail’s Tea Room and pick up souvenirs to remember your time from the Gift Shop.
Buying admission includes a one-hour tour and includes seeing a variety of virtual exhibits highlighted by the aforementioned restored tea ships. The tour is designed to give you the opportunity to participate, explore and learn about the people, events and consequences that led up to the American Revolution in the order in which they actually occurred more than 230 years ago.
