Some great actors and an immersive experience. Very educational and for a tourist ( like me ) and great insight into the events leading up to the civil war. Great work.

Unfortunately the museum was closed for a public event. Maybe Check ahead next time. Museum is on the water situated in a great walkable area. Children’s museum nearby. Best find was the local restroom with live music on the water 1 block way.

The staff at the museum did an excellent job of making visitors catch the spirit of the revolutionists! There’s a simulated town hall meeting where guests receive cards and can participate. Later you get to come aboard the replica ships and throw “tea” into the...More

This was a fun historical site. Very well done and you get your money's worth. Great props, realistic and knowledgeable acting staff. The ship was a replica which was awesome. It also had an impressive gift shop.

A rather tacky tour but you must try Abigails tearoom. Tea platter gets you tea in a teapot, very nice.

I believe that is one of the only days they close. It would be a shame for you to miss this event as it is well worth the visit. You feel as if you have been transported back in time. Do try to fit it in another day.

I don’t think they take reservations. The trolley stop is right across the street from the Museum. They have several tours going through, in different areas, at the same time. The tour moves quickly through the museum... More
