Boston Tea Party Museum

Welcome to the Boston Tea Party Museum, where history comes to life! Located in the heart of Boston, this museum showcases one of the most iconic events in American history.


Location

The Boston Tea Party Museum is at 306 Congress Street on the Congress Street Bridge. It is conveniently situated near several popular attractions, such as Faneuil Hall Marketplace, the Old South Meeting House, and the Paul Revere House. Visitors can easily access the museum by public transportation or driving, with ample parking nearby.

History

The Boston Tea Party Museum is dedicated to preserving and sharing the history of the Boston Tea Party, an event that sparked the American Revolution. On December 16, 1773, a group of colonists disguised as Native Americans boarded three ships and dumped over 300 crates of tea into the Boston Harbor in protest against the British government's taxation policies. This act of defiance became a powerful symbol of American patriotism.

Activities

Visitors to the museum can experience the Boston Tea Party first-hand through interactive exhibits, reenactments, and live performances. The museum features two replica ships, the Beaver and the Eleanor, where guests can participate in a "tea-throwing" event. A multi-sensory film takes visitors back to the events leading up to the Boston Tea Party.
