Old South Meeting House

Explore one of America's most important colonial landmarks. The Old South Meeting House is where the infamous Boston Tea Party began, and you'll get the chance to see where it all started. Learn all about the American Revolution through the interactive exhibits, and discover the play-by-play events that led to America's independence from British rule.

This unique architectural gem is the oldest surviving public building in Boston. Wander through beautifully-restored period rooms and climb up the grand staircases where history happened. You'll step into the pulpit area where pastors would preach their fiery Christian sermons and see where the party debates took place. Don’t miss the Old South Meeting House’s special exhibits, which include Voices of Protest, a retelling of the controversial and fascinating events that occurred in the building, and If These Walls Could Speak, a state-of-the-art audio exhibit.


Voices of Protest – discover the people behind the protest and learn all about free speech and how it has evolved. You'll see tea leaves and a tea crate label from the Boston Tea Party on display, along with a 3D model of colonial Boston that's over 100 years old. Original artifacts include John Hancock's portable writing desk, a statue of enslaved poet Phillis Wheatley and her first-edition 1773 book.

Scavenger hunts – if you're traveling with little ones, inject some fun into the history lesson by taking part in one of the scavenger hunts around the house. There are different versions for a variety of ages, including adults, and it's included with your admission ticket.

If These Walls Could Speak – download this free audio guide and listen in to key moments from history while you browse the exhibits. You'll hear Boston Tea Party debates, action from the Great Boston Fire of 1872 and more.

What happened at the Old South Meeting House?

On December 16, 1773, a herd of angry colonists (5,000 to be precise), fed up with having to pay outrageous taxes on their beloved 'cuppa tea,' among so many other things, decided that they had had enough. The Old South Meeting House, being the largest building in Colonial Boston, provided the perfect place for protest and set the stage for future events of the American Revolution, including the often-referenced Tea Party.


Old State House Museum

Feel like the most powerful person in Colonial America – the Old State House is where the American Revolution was born. It's where the Boston Massacre took place, freedom was debated, and independence was announced to the city. Step across the threshold of the iconic museum and you'll get a real insight into the past.

You'll have access to the tours and performances led by costumed Revolutionary characters, who literally bring history to life. Or, you can take your time and explore the museum at your own pace on a self-guided tour. Discover period rooms filled with multi-sensory exhibits, historic art, and one-of-a-kind artifacts. Sit in the Royal Governor's chair in the King's Council Chamber and see lavish Colonial costumes and ammunition up close. You'll even find tea salvaged from the Boston Tea Party on display.

Old State House history

  • The Old State House is the only surviving public building in Boston.
  • The museum is where the 1761 speech by James Otis took place that helped lead to the American Revolution, and it's because of this that it's seen as the birthplace of the American Revolution.
  • The Declaration of Independence was proclaimed from the balcony of the Old State House in 1776.
  • The house was originally built with symbols of Britain incorporated, like wooden statues of a lion and unicorn. These were torn down by the townspeople and burned.
