    In case you’d be interested, tomorrow at 11:00 the tea party actors, in costume, will be walking (police escorted) from the ship museum to the State Street Courthouse to do a re-enactment. Should be fun!

    • Event today:

      The Boston Tea Party Ships & Museum
      Welcomes the Arrival of the Robinson Half Tea Chest
      June 13th 12:30-1:30 p.m. Old South Meeting House
      *Approx. 1:30 p.m. arrives at Boston Tea Party Ships & Museum

      The Robinson Half Chest is one of the only two known tea chests still in existence from the original Boston Tea Party on December 16, 1773, and will be on display in the new Boston Tea Party Ships & Museum. The Robinson Half Chest will arrive back in Boston Harbor, at the exact site where “the single most important event leading up to the American Revolution,” occurred 239 years ago.

      The arrival of the Robinson Half Chest will begin with a speaking program and acknowledgment at the Old South Meeting House. From there, the Chest will be transported by carriage down Milk Street to Congress Street lead by the full cast and crew of the Boston Tea Party Ships & Museum along with The Bostonia Allarum Companie Fife and Drum Corps. Upon its arrival, Mayor Thomas M. Menino and Chris Belland, CEO of Historic Tours of America will receive the Robinson Half Tea Chest.
