Unique Boston Event Venues

Special Events & Weddings

You are invited to host your special event or occasion at Boston’s newest and most unique location – the Boston Tea Party Ships & Museum. Abigail’s Tea Room and Terrace, our Replica Tea Ships and Griffins Wharf all provide magnificent settings for every occasion, from cocktail receptions to business meetings to elegant seated dinners.

Our Museum is set on the water, located in the middle of Fort Point Channel on Boston Harbor and boasts breathtaking views. Our brand new facility showcases an atmosphere of American history and unique colonial charm!

Venue Facilities

The Boston Tea Party Ships & Museum offers three unique rental options to best suit your needs:

Abigail’s Tea Room and Terrace

Abigail’s Tea Room and Terrace is located on the second floor of the Museum. Abigail’s features floor-to-ceiling windows, graceful ambiance, elegant lighting and a warm glowing fireplace. We provide several different floor plans for your specific needs and group size requirements. For a unique meeting or presentation venue, the room offers easily- accessible AV equipment.

Abigail’s Tea Room, Terrace & Griffin’s Wharf

In addition to Abigail’s Tea Room and Terrace, for larger groups in warmer climates, we offer Griffin’s Wharf. Just below the second floor windows of Abigail’s, sits Griffin Wharf surrounded by warm breezes, gorgeous sunsets and a setting of true maritime charm. Sip cold crisp wine while literally in the middle of Fort Point Channel. Warm glowing lanterns set the scene for a lovely evening of cocktails, appetizers with old and new friends.
