Fort Vancouver National Historic Site is pleased to announce upcoming dates for the 2019-2020 Lantern Tour program. These popular guided tours lead participants on an after-dark experience through either the reconstructed Fort Vancouver or the historic Vancouver Barracks.
Lantern Tours: An Evening at the Fort
Lantern Tours: An Evening at the Fort take place inside the Fort Vancouver stockade. Participants are treated to historical vignettes in several buildings as a park ranger guide them through the reconstructed fort. These vignettes transport the visitor back in time to exhibit what life was like at Fort Vancouver in the 1840s. Lantern tours start at 7 pm, but visitors must arrive at 6:45 pm. Admission is $25 per adult, and $10 per youth.
