Located on the Congress Street Bridge in Boston, Massachusetts, this floating Boston Museum is unlike anything you’ve ever experienced before. Live actors, high-tech, interactive exhibits, authentically restored tea ships and the stirring, multi-sensory documentary “Let it Begin Here,” are just a taste of what guests see, hear and feel.

During the experience guests meet the colonists, explore the ships and dump tea overboard just as the Sons of Liberty did on that fateful night of December 16, 1773. It’s educational, entertaining and enlightening — an experience not to be missed by adults and children of all ages.
The tour lasts approximately one hour and takes guests through a variety of virtual exhibits, authentically restored tea ships as well as traditional Boston Museum Exhibits that are all interconnected.
