  • Great museum to learn about the tea party. Very interesting tour too. All of the staff was very joyful and informative. It is definitely great place for families. They also have a very nice gift shop and a place to get tea pastries. I think it is cool that everyone gets a role in the story too.
  • The museum tour was really amazing. We got to go on the boat and saw some interesting videos of the events that led up to the Boston Tea Party dumping. They had a case from the event that was passed down generations and remarkable to see an actual box from the event. They also have a tea area where you can relax and have some cookies. They have games to play while relaxing there before or after the tour. Would high recommend this place.
