Sense the emotion and determination of our forefathers who fought for our freedom and independence. Join Sam Adams and his fellow patriots on this historical experience as you relive moments from the past. The Boston Tea Party was the single most important event leading up to the American Revolution. Opening in June of 2012, the Boston Tea Party Ships & Museum is dedicated to telling the story of that fateful night of December 16, 1773.
By combining the best type of interactive technology and live historical performances, the Boston Tea Party Ships & Museum offers an experience like no other.
