Lantern Tours

The official Freedom Trail Lantern Tour offers a first of its kind experience in uncovering the dark history and mystery of the Freedom Trail by lantern-light! Fatal sword duels, the grave of a ruthless pirate, tales of scandalous murders, and the punishment and hanging of convicted witches: all real, and all explored on the Freedom Trail Lantern Tour.

Investigate the ghoulish side of Boston’s iconic red-lined path by lantern-light and hear historic tales too dark and macabre for day-time. Join a Freedom Trail® Player, darkly garbed with a lantern, and bring true accounts of appalling crimes, spies and assassins, cold-blooded killings, and demonic possession to life.

Thursdays, September 21 through October 26 and Saturdays, October 7 through 28, at 7:00 p.m. from the ArtsBoston Booth at Faneuil Hall

Discounted online general admission tickets are good for this tour.
