Group Tours

The Sons and Daughters of Liberty look forward to welcoming your group to the Boston Tea Party Ships & Museum for a one of a kind experience. Join Samuel Adams as he leads a recreation of the historic town meeting held prior to marching on Griffin’s Wharf. Everyone will get a chance to participate in this rebellion by tossing the Crown’s tea into the same body of water where this brave act took place nearly 250 years ago. After taking part in the “destruction of the tea” aboard our full-scale replica 18th-century sailing vessels, you will enter the museum where you will encounter the Robinson Tea Chest, the only known surviving tea chest from the “Boston Tea Party”. Learn how this event sparked the American Revolution as you experience our immersive, critically acclaimed film, “Let It Begin Here”.

School Field Trips

Take your school on a field trip they will never forget! Join Samuel Adams and the Sons and Daughters of Liberty as they protest the King’s unjust taxes. Your students will play an active role in a riveting reenactment of the historic town meeting held just hours before the Boston Tea Party. They will storm down to Griffin’s Wharf and board one of our authentic replica vessels where they will cast off the yoke of tyranny by throwing the Crown’s tea into Boston Harbor. Explore below decks, and learn about life at sea, funny anecdotes from the Boston Tea Party, and the strange weather conditions facing the Sons of Liberty when they destroyed the tea. Follow the Sons and Daughters of Liberty as they make their escape from the wharf, and discover the last remaining tea crate from the Boston Tea Party which washed up on shore the morning after. Finally, your class will learn how the Boston Tea Party sparked the American Revolution as they are surrounded by the action and sounds of our award-winning, multisensory film, “Let It Begin Here”.
