Boston Tea Party Ships


In 1773, the Sons of Liberty made a political protest called as the Boston Tea Party, initially known as the Destruction of the Tea in Boston. An entire shipment of tea was destroyed by the demonstrators, in defiance to a certain Tea Act. This made the tea party to be an iconic event in the history of America. It is from this that the Boston Tea Party Ships and Museum came to be. This interactive floating museum is located on the Congress Street Bridge. It features two ships that were authentically restored, reenactments and other interactive exhibits.



You get to enjoy a guided tour of the Tea Party Museum which lasts for about an hour or so, to give you a taste of the history of Boston in an atmosphere that is fun.



You will get ample opportunities for sightseeing when visiting the Tea Party Ships, reliving the catalyst of the American Revolution. The tour starts with a town meeting then goes aboard a ship to toss tea into the harbor. It concludes with a movie based on the time period, and oral reports.


See artifacts

The Robinson Tea Chest is one of the only two known tea chests that have survived since the 1773 Boston Tea Party. It is available on display at the museum and is just one of the many artefacts that you can see.

The easiest way is to take blue line of the T from State. This will take you to the Aquarium from where you will walk for about five minutes before reaching the Tea Party Museum.
