This is a necessity if you're visiting Boston. This experience was informative, interactive, and fun. The cast were very knowledgeable and immersive. We also tried recreations of the tea that was tossed in the harbor. It was a great time!

Thoroughly enjoyed our experience at the Tea Party Ships and Museum. Precautions were taken to prevent the spread of COVID. The actors and staff were great and allowed you to participate in the tea dumping. Very nice upstairs dining area with free tea afterwards.
