Faneuil Hall Visitor Center
The National Park Service visitor center at 15 State Street closed its doors on May 21, 2012 and was replaced by a new, state-of-the-art, visitor center in historic Faneuil Hall on Friday, May 25, 2012.
The new visitor center is much more than an entryway into Boston National Historical Park and Boston African American National Historic Site. It serves also as a gateway to all of the Massachusetts National Parks.
Open, light-filled and welcoming, visitors will find visual displays, printed materials, maps and park rangers on hand to provide expert guidance.
The new Faneuil Hall Visitor Center, integrating current technologies and design while remaining faithful to the traditional national park experience that travelers have come to know and love, will give visitors from all over the globe the information they need to make the most of their time in Boston and Massachusetts.
Along with a new visitor center, Boston National Historical Park has a free mobile app. For more information and to download the app, click here.
Did You Know?
Owning a shop to sell sewing supplies was one of the few occupations available to women in 18th century Boston. Many women were widowed by the French & Indian War and supported their families by working in the sewing trades. By 1770 over 70 shop-owning women in Boston were called "She-Merchants."
