Lantern Light Tours at Mystic Seaport Museum

  • Mystic Seaport Museum 47 Greenmanville Avenue Mystic, CT 06355 (map)

Join the Mystic Seaport Museum for an evening of seasonal surprises with Lantern Light Tours: Finding Your Place. Set on Christmas Eve in the year 1876, the play offers small windows into the lives of people on the verge of great change, both personal and cultural. The show includes five scenes of seasonal delight, featuring a winter fantasia, a spirited circle dance, and perhaps a visit with old St. Nick! Written by esteemed playwright and dramaturg Kato McNickle, Finding Your Place invites us to explore the world and broaden our point of view to better understand our place within it.

Each performance of Lantern Light Tours is an approximately 90-minute tour that covers roughly a half mile of uneven terrain including cobblestone, wood planking, grass, gravel, and stairs. Audience members walk or stand for the majority of the show. Because performances occur in all weather conditions, the Mystic Seaport Museum strongly recommends the use of seasonal outerwear and appropriate shoes.

Performances of Lantern Light Tours require a special ticket in lieu of general admission. Performances are appropriate for all ages, though not recommended for children younger than the age of 4.

Advance registration is required. Tour size is limited to 16 tickets.
