Boston Tea Party Ships & Museum
Relive the events of December 16, 1773 at the Boston Tea Party Ships and Museum. Located in Boston Harbor, this floating museum provides visitors with an immersive experience, complete with full-scale replica tea ships, live costumed actors, a multi-sensory documentary, interactive exhibits, historic artifacts, and more.

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.

Things to Know Before You Go
  • Visitors can only enter the museum on a guided tour; book ahead to reserve a spot.
  • Purchase tickets online for extra savings.
  • The museum includes a gift shop as well as a tea room; you can access both without a ticket to the museum. The tea room hosts monthly tavern nights that include period music, food, and drink.
  • Photos are not permitted inside the museum exhibits.
  • The museum is wheelchair accessible.

How to Get There
The museum is located on the Congress Street Bridge, on the Fort Point Channel. To reach the site via public transportation, take the MBTA Red Line to South Station, the number 7 bus to Summer Street at Melcher Street, or the Old Town Trolley to stop 15. There is discounted parking for museum visitors at the Farnsworth Garage and the Stillings Garage.

When to Get There
The museum is open daily all year round from late morning until early afternoon, with slightly longer hours from April through October. The museum is closed on Thanksgiving Day and Christmas Day. Tours last about one hour and begin every 30 minutes. Allow yourself extra time if you plan to visit the gift shop or tea room. 

Attractions at Fort Point Channel
After visiting the Boston Tea Party Ships and Museum, head to some of the other popular attractions at Fort Point Channel, such as the Boston Children’s Museum, the Boston Fire Museum, or the Institute of Contemporary Art. The area is also close to the Seaport, the Financial District, and Faneuil Hall and is part of the 43-mile (69-kilometer) Boston Harborwalk, which connects the city’s waterfront neighborhoods.
