The Basics

A visit to the Boston Tea Party Ships and Museum is an immersive experience: Visitors first head to the Meeting Room and receive a disguise, then march to the wharf and board one of the replica ships throw a crate of tea overboard. After you’ve helped start the revolution, head to the museum to see actors recreate the debates that followed the tea party, enjoy a documentary, and see historic artifacts.
