Historic Tours of America has begun a major restoration and expansion of the Boston Tea Party Ships & Museum. The original site, which was established in 1973, suffered major damage from a devastating fire. At the new Boston Tea Party Ships & Museum Revolutionary Boston will come to life!
The new Boston Tea Party Ships & Museum will be located in the middle of the Fort Point Channel and will include interactive exhibits that will transport visitors back in time to Revolutionary Boston!
On site will be a fixed platform attached to the Congress Street Bridge housing two reconstructed 18th century Meeting Houses for historical interpretation and living history programs, a retail store, and offices. Housed on a floating barge to which the ships are moored, the second floor of the Boston museum will be a reconstructed 18th century tavern reminiscent of those that dotted the streets of Revolutionary Boston and were a meeting place of the Sons of Liberty. The tavern will be a living history experience and serve delicious fare characteristic of the period. Visitors will also be treated to tours onboard full-scale replicas of the Tea Party ships which are currently being restored.
