Tea Party Ships & Museum
Best New Museum
The image of rabble-rousing patriots dressing up in Indian garb and tossing British tea into the harbor to protest the king’s tax policies continues to resonate nearly 240 years later. A lightning bolt in 2001 and a fire in 2007 destroyed the old ship and museum devoted to this singular event in U.S. history, but a new museum and three replica ships will open on June 24 of this year to put the Tea Party literally on the map again.
