Samuel Adams by Susie Chisholm

We are happy to report that Samuel Adams has left the building. That is sculptor Susie Chisholm’s studio in Savannah, Georgia. He is now making the 1,104 mile drive to Boston. This magnificent statue will be unveiled in front of the Boston Tea Party Ships & Museum on April 19. We hope to see you there!

Winter Wonderland aka the Blizzard of 2013

As we are still watching it snow outside we thought we would share some of the images of the ship from last night. To quote Snoopy, “It was a dark and stormy night….”

Historical Sites of the American Revolution

Have you ever wondered exactly how America was born? At the Boston Tea Party Ships and Museum, you actually become apart of the event that permanently altered the course of American history! It’s not a Boston museum where you look at artifacts through glass from a distance, it’s a hands-on experience unlike anything you’ve ever witnessed. Live actors, high-tech, interactive exhibits, restored tall ships, and documentary films are just a taste of what you’ll see, hear, and truly take part in! Come aboard, meet the colonists, choose a stance, explore the authentic ships, and dump tea overboard just like the Sons of Liberty did on that incredible night in 1773! Boston Museum Tours last one hour and will take you through a variety of exhibits and displays. Go to Abigail’s Tea Room for Teatime or visit the gift ship for specially crafted souvenirs! Come learn, be entertained, and enlightened! There’s no age limit, because everyone can take something away from this top-rated Boston Attraction.

Do you believe in the tea taxes? Do you agree with the British occupation? How to do you feel about freedom? Come to one of the most interactive Boston Attractions and share YOUR ideas on board!

We don’t like to brag but…

Have you had a chance to see our new video? We are pretty proud of it. We would like to say it was a lot of hard work to put together, and it was. But truth be told, we had a great time with our CAST and crew filming this in no small part because we work with some very talented and amazing folks. Now get yourself a spot of tea, sit back and watch!

While we are incredibly proud of what we have created at the Boston Tea Party Ships & Museum, there is no way we could have created such a place without some of the most talented people in world. From master shipwright Leon Poindexter to American Revolutionary War artist Don Troiani to Musion Systems, it took lots of talented folks, working lots of long hours to make our museum what it is. Meet them here.
