Boston Tea Party Ships & Museum

At the Boston Tea Party Ships & Museum you can be a part of the famous event that forever changed the course of American history! Each fully immersive tour is a fully guided experience throughout the ships and museum. An 18th century host will lead you through an interactive colonial town meeting, on to one of our ships to “dump the tea,” and through the museum as you discover what happened during the single most important event leading up to the American Revolution!
