Boston Tea Party

The Boston Tea Party was an act of protest by the American colonists against Great Britain in which they destroyed many crates of tea bricks on ships in Boston Harbor. The incident, which took place on Thursday, December 16, 1773, has been seen as helping to spark the American Revolution.

This museum sits on the original location of the Tea Party and houses a full size replica of a British ship at the time.

At the moment the museum is closed for renovation, due to a severe fire in 2001.
