Skyline from the Children's Museum, Boston, Massachusetts, USA
Boston

Along the wharf on the Fort Point Channel is Boston Children’s Museum. Almost 100 years old, the museum pioneered the “hands-on” museum experience for visiting children. The building was originally a wool warehouse and the museum moved there in 1979 when it needed more space and better public access. The museum’s mission is to “help children and families enjoy, understand and become active citizens of the world”.

Standing adjacent to the museum is the Hood Milk Bottle, an ice cream stand and snack bar. Hood is a brand of dairy products in the eastern United States. The original bottle was built in 1933 as an ice cream store in Taunton, Massachusetts and after an interesting history, was donated by the HP Hood Company to the Boston Children’s Museum in 1977. It stands 40 feet high.

To the right of the Hood Milk Bottle, the Congress Street Bridge spans the Fort Point Channel. This 547 foot long bridge is one of a group of unique and historical bridges in the area. The bridge was completed in 1930.

In the foreground in front of the downtown Boston skyline is Fort Point Channel. This is the general area that the famous Boston Tea Party of 1773 took place although the portion of the channel that the event actually took place has most likely been filled and now exists as dry land in downtown Boston, across the channel.

Further to the right the Evelyn Moakley Bridge carries Seaport Blvd. traffic across the channel and beyond that is the Northern Avenue Bridge.
