The Boston Tea Party Ships and Museum will give you a comprehensive look into the days leading up to December 16, 1773, as well as this fateful day’s role in kick-starting the American Revolution. The museum combines historic and rare artifacts with cutting-edge technology to give you a real-life experience of what life was like in Boston during the 18th century. Spend your day wandering the museum and the exhibits at your leisure, or take advantage of the complimentary, one hour guided tours that leave every 30 minutes!

Museum exhibits include: The Meeting House:See a reenactment of the evening of December 16, 1773, when patriots dumped the loads of British tea into the Boston Harbor.

Griffin's Wharf: At Griffin's Wharf, take pictures with colonial cutouts and mingle with costumed patriots. The wharf played a crucial role in the Boston Tea Party protests and is a perfect place for photos of the tall ships and the Boston Harbor.
