The Boston Tea Party Ships and Museum

 The Old Town Trolley Boston Tour stops at
 a "must-see" on my list 

A visit to The Boston Tea Party Museum is an interactive, educational, 
entertaining, and fun experience for all ages. 
Visitors gather in the Meeting House and are given a role to
participate with actors as Colonists.
 After the "meeting" with the Sons of Liberty, visitors explore the 
authentic replicas of the Beaver and the Eleanor 
 and throw tea overboard into the historic harbor at Griffin's Wharf. 
 
On the deck of the Beaver with our tour guide. 

 
The ships and dock are actually a floating museum. 



 After visiting the Museum, seeing a surviving Tea Chest,
and viewing the award-winning film, "Let It Begin Here", visitors 
were invited into Abigail's Tea Room for tea.  
 A variety of hot and cold teas are ready for tasting. 
Also, scones, pastries, and clam chowder are available.  
 And, of course, we visited the well-stocked gift shop before departing.  

Admission cost was included in the Boston Old Town Trolley Tour price.  

Our family especially enjoyed this tea experience because our 
friend Bruce Richardson of Elmwood Inn Fine Teas in Danville, KY
is the Boston Tea Party Ships and Museum Tea Master.
