The Boston Tea Party Ships and Museum in Boston, MA is not your typical museum. The floating museum is located at 306 Congress Street. Visitors are transported back to the time of a very important event in the American Revolution by using real live actors, interactive exhibits, and the use of a multi-sensory documentary.
Visitors will be able to meet and interact with the colonists and explore the authentically restored tea ships. Throw the tea off of the ships just as they did that night in December 16, 1773. Stop for tea in at Abigail’s Tea shop and there is a souvenir shop too. The Tour takes about an hour and it is for children as well as adults.
The journey begins at the Meeting House where the colonists and the Sons of Liberty made the decision to throw the tea off the ships. Board the two tea party ships and throw the tea overboard in protest. Most people do not realize that the ships where American ships that just happen to be carrying tea from the Boston Tea Company. The Griffins Wharf exhibit really beings the life of the colonist alive.
Thanks to the advancement in technology, the museum is able to make history fun, exciting, and educational. While in the area, there are many attractions nearby such as the Old South Meeting House and Faneuil Hall, which all play a part in the history of the Boston Tea Party. The Freedom Trail is another popular way of seeing the sights that Boston has to offer.
