Lantern Light Village

December 8 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Lantern Light Village at Mystic Seaport Museum

After-Hours Event 5PM-8PM. Lantern Light Village is an outdoor, self-guided experience for the whole family, designed to exemplify the differences between the modern and 19th century holiday seasons. Take a journey through time as you seamlessly transition between the holidays you experience today and the holidays of the past. Enjoy festive lighting displays, live music, horse and carriage rides, crackling fires, a visit to St. Nicholas, and more, including holiday themed stories, crafts, and games!

Experience an original theatrical event, “Holiday Heirlooms,” by traveling through the generations of one 19th-century family’s Christmas traditions- old and new. See how Christmas and the traditions surrounding it have changed over time, and how the Christmas we know today has transformed. As you explore our historic village, you will partake in a 19th-century dance, hear songs of Christmases past, and share a family’s Christmas holiday.

Be sure to join us at Mystic Seaport Museum for Lantern Light Village as we bring to life New England holiday seasons of old in what’s certain to become your next favorite holiday tradition!

Registration is required.
