Things To Do
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.
Take a Guided Tour
Boston National Historical Park preserves and interprets Boston's involvement in the American Revolution and the establishment of one of the first navy yards in the United States. Come join us to discover the human story of the struggles, ideals, and sacrifices Bostonians made for the fight for freedom.
We offer free ranger-led tours and talks for school groups, organizations, and any other group interested in learning about the importance of Boston and its history.
Become a Junior Ranger!
There are two ways to get a Junior Ranger handbook. When you come to the park, visit the Faneuil Hall Visitor Center or the Charlestown Navy Yard Visitor Center. A park ranger or volunteer can give you a copy of the Junior Ranger Handbook.
If you can't wait to get your hands on one, you can download a copy here.
