Well this place is as random as random can be. It is located dead center in the middle of a river. On one side is a super fancy steakhouse and on the other is the Boston Children's Museum. It has two ships tied up alongside of it.

These two ships have been on several TV shows that I have seen on the discovery channel. They take you on board with folks in costume, give you a bit of history, and let a couple of folks toss fake tea boxes overboard. It is a fun time and informative, but I have a lot more preferences than that.

Pro Tip: Do visit the gift shop here as it is very nice. They also have 3 of everything.

The folks in character I will admit did grate on my nerves significantly. I will admit that I didnt take the tour, but I watched a significant portion of it from the tea house entrances. ;) shhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh...

The prices in the gift shop fluctuated from good to ridiculously high depending on what you were looking for. They also have some stuff on sale or clearance and those were the best deals that they had by far. I was able to make several purchases here and that made my trip gifts workout much easier...

Its worth stopping in and checking out so say the least. Especially if you need some swag to take home for the friends and or relatives.

Cute but corny! There are different options from a tea time to a tour, depending on what you're looking for. When we walked by the bridge, there was a group throwing "tea" into the harbor.

There is nothing wrong with getting a little history lesson while you are away! The kids will love the experience they get learning about this historic moment as they get to go back in time, visit the ship, and learn about it through a fully costumed staff. It is unlike anything your family has experienced before!

Although it was cheesy, they do a good job trying to illustrate the story of the Boston Tea Party. However, the museum doesn't have much to it - just more about the story of the revolution and how the Tea Party played a role.
