Only at The Fife is Right can you challenge your own knowledge of Boston against two teams of local expertshistorians, authors, seafarers and shipwrightsas they compete to become captains of history! Author, historian and Quizmaster Susan Wilson and the Old South Meeting House staff will hit our experts with wave after wave of challenging questions about wonderful waterways, bayside beaches, super sea creatures, perilous pirates and prominent piers.
The answers are so detailed and so fun that you'll leave an expert yourself! As part of the audience, you may need to toss a life preserver out to contestants in trouble!
Why is it called The Fife is Right? Because you'll hear the cheery tune on fife if the team answers a question correctly, of course! (How else could Boston's famous 1729 colonial gathering place signal a correct answer?!)
