We spent a few hours here during our first ever trip to Boston. It’s a wonderful “living” museum with lots of information presented in a “first person” experience. We loved it all and should be included in your Boston tourist itinerary.

We had a good time. Great staff and guides made the visit enjoyable. It is very touristy and a little cheesy, I would not enjoy if there had been long lines or a wait. Fairly short visit, about one hour.

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.

We bought tickets when we arrived but later noticed that there were coupon codes online that we could have used.
