A lot of history about the American Revolution gets crammed into a guided visit here, culminating with visitors participating in a tea party re-enactment by tossing bales of fake tea overboard under the encouragement of costumed patriots. The experience is corny, but many guests love it. The panoramic movie that simulates battlefield action might be intense for young visitors. Tickets are pricey; check online for discounts.
