Visit Historic Sites

Walking along the Freedom Trail® and visiting historic sites along the way is one of the most popular ways to experience the city and Boston National Historical Park.

Start your visit at either the Faneuil Hall Visitor Center or the Charlestown Navy Yard Visitor Center. There you'll find park maps and information, as well as park rangers and volunteers who can help you plan your visit to Boston's historic sites.

Go to Plan Your Visit to learn more about the historic sites in the park.

You can also plan your trip using the park's Mobile app.
