My two teenaged grandchildren seemed interested. Shocked me. They get the crowd involved, get to throw some tea into the river. Overall a good tour, the people working there seemed to genuinely enjoy their work.

The Tea Party Ship & Museum is a classic stop on the tourist Freedom Trail route of Boston. It does have an interesting story to tell, and the ship and museum have recently been completely redone after a fire destroyed the old ship and pier.

The “barking crab” was extremely popular when I was in Boston. A second popular restaurant was “the daily catch seaport.” Neither did I try...but the amount of people at both was mostly local.

I think it's feasible to access the boat with a wheelchair or a similar device, but you might not find it easy to manoeuvre on to/on the ship. If should have someone with you who can lift it and move it by hand.
