Mystic Seaport Museum Lantern Light Village

December 2, 2022 - December 17, 2022

Mystic Seaport Museum’s Lantern Light Village is an outdoor, free-roaming experience 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.

Mystic Seaport Museum Lantern Light Village

Premiering this year, Mystic Seaport Museum will be exploring the time-honored tradition of celebrating the holidays with ghost stories! Experience our original theatrical event “Yuletide Spirits” and learn how ghost stories like “A Christmas Carol” became a staple of winter festivities, and why they’re now just a spectre of the past. As you explore our historic village, you’ll enjoy classic carols, master a 19th century dance, and of course sip hot drinks while listening to chilling tales — but not too hot or too chilling for the whole family to enjoy!

Dates: December 2, 3, 9, 10, 16, and 17, 2022


Adult (Ages 13 and up) $29, Members $24
Youth (Ages 4-12) $24, Members $19
Ages 1-3 are free

Be sure to join us for Lantern Light Village “Yuletide Spirits” as we bring to life New England holiday seasons of old in what’s certain to become your next favorite holiday tradition!

Enjoy festive lighting displays, live music, horse and carriage rides, fire pits, a visitation from St. Nicholas, and more including holiday-themed stories, crafts, and games!
