Lat week, the Boston Tea Party Museum reopened, just in time for the 4th of July. It seemed an appropriate time to visit the museum, learn about Boston’s part in the American Revolution and get excited for the upcoming patriotic holiday.
The museum tour began with a mock town meeting, in which actors discussed the colonists’ grievances with England and plotted the tea party protest. I really enjoyed the atmosphere in this part of the tour, as the children of the tour became excited about revolution and we all yelled “Fie!” and “Yay!” in unison.
We then proceeded to the ships, replicas of the originals, afloat in the Harbor. We were able to board one of them and explore it. It was quite beautiful. We were all invited to throw mock tea chests into the Harbor, reenacting the historic rebellion.
