School trips to Boston
Rich in history and architecturally grand, Boston offers educational opportunities in buckets. One of America's oldest cities, it was founded by freedom-seeking Puritans back in 1630 and four centuries later, is still a centre for cultural and social change.
Visit the Tea Party Ships, which moored on the ocean alongside a spanking new museum provide a colourful insight into the protest against a British tax on tea - a key event in the American revolution, or go to the Peabody Museum of Archaeology & Ethnology and follow the history of the North American Indian.
Not that it's all about the past. You can give students a thrill with a high-speed catamaran trip to watch humpback, finback, and minke whales frolic in the Atlantic at Stellwagen Bank, or take a trip to Fenway Park, the USA's oldest baseball park, to watch the Red Sox play.

recommended educational trips for Boston
Freedom Trail Tour
This 2.5 mile walking tour takes you on a journey of 16 historically significant sites – each one an authentic treasure. Explore King’s Chapel, the Benjamin Franklin statue, The Old State House, the site of the Boston Massacre, the Boston Tea Party and the USS Constitution.
Old State House Museum
Visit this National historic treasure and experience the American Revolution through the eyes of the people that lived it, in the place it all began. The Old State House Museum is a must see destination.
Paul Revere House
On the night of April 18, 1775, silversmith Paul Revere left his small wooden home in Boston's North End and set out on a journey that would make him into a legend. Today that home is still standing at 19 North Square and has become a national historic landmark.
USS Constitution and Museum
Serving as a reminder and educational voice of USS Constitution, this museum collects, preserves and interprets the stories of "Old Ironsides" and the people associated with her. The Museum ensures that the stories of USS Constitution and those who shaped her history are never forgotten, always remain relevant, and inspire as many people as possible.
Take your students to the home of the famous Boston Red Sox, at the oldest Major League Baseball ground in the USA! Soak up the atmosphere of a game and taste the iconic 'Fenway Frank'.
Boston Tea Party Ship and Museum
This museum will transport you on an incredible journey back in time as you take part in the famous event that forever changed the course of American History! You’ll have an all-encompassing, multi-sensory experience in this one-of-a-kind museum.
Faneuil Hall and Quincy Market
Located close to the waterfront, the historic Faneuil Hall building has become an iconic symbol of the city of Boston. Hosting numerous political speeches at the height of the American Revolution from the likes of Samuel Adams and James Otis who encouraged independence from Great Britain, Faneuil Hall played a pivotal role in the founding of modern America. Today Faneuil Hall is a bustling marketplace, alongside neighbouring Quincy Market, housing boutiques, well-known outlet stores, cafes and restaurants. A perfect way to mix history and retail history, all at the same time!
There’s no better way to see the skyline of Boston than at the top of Boston’s Skywalk Observatory.
