Come relive that historic night in the Boston Harbor on December 16th, 1773, when American Colonists took matters into their own hands to oppose British rule. Sense the emotion and determination of our forefathers who fought for our freedom and independence.
How it Started
It was a series of events, not just the arrival of the tea ships, that caused the uproarious action on that night over two centuries ago. The colonists, who considered themselves to be British subjects, were incensed by the imposition of monopolies and taxes of the people of the American colonies.
The Catalyst to the American Revolution
Faced with the realization that they had no say in these matters and that no amount of negotiating would change their situation, the patriots felt they had to do something.
The events that took place before and during The Boston Tea Party are recognized as the catalyst to the American Revolution, and the turning point in the history of the country that led to their position as an independent nation.

Now, people of all ages can get a first-hand look at this turbulent period and how it impacted the world we live in today at this new Boston museum.
