intended to visit the museum but a lot of school trips so just went to the gift shop and tea shop. Would definitely recommend a visit to the tea shop.

This place is great fun, they get you to interact in the story at the beginning, lots of fun. I highly recommend going as was very interesting as well.

Great for all ages. Right downtown and right in front of you,history. Takes you back to the way things "really" happened.Tours are good and the views are good. Close to everything. Give yourself about an hour.

Did the full tour, well worth it for getting to know and understanding what it was all about. We didn't have clue. The staff do a wonderful job recreating events from the time. Then you can visit the gift shop or tea rooms.

Visited today for the interactive show and at $28 each it was fully priced but still was worth it. The show was very good and informative.

I quite enjoyed my trip here but was a bit surprised there wasn't more to it. I arrived shortly before there was a 'tour', so I didn't have long to wait which is just as well as there isn't anything to do while you wait!...More

Was surprised by how well the staff recreated and told the events of the causes of the revolution. The boat tour really showed how difficult it was to even get the tea out and the museum tour was great.

When planning my trip to Boston, I could not quite understand what comprised the Tea Party Ships and “Museum.” The venue includes a place to purchase tickets, a gift shop, Abigail’s Tea Room, and the “museum,” which is not a space that you passively walk...More

Will this be a tour that can be taken during rainy weather? We're coming up to Boston tomorrow, so looking at options to do if it rains, which is in the forecast.

Yes, most of the tour is inside. The 15 or so minutes on the ship are outside, but with a raincoat you'll be fine

I don't know about a discount for children, but we received a discount as a result of purchasing a ticket for the Old Town Trolley Hop on Hop Off Bus. This is one of their stops.
