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 Christmas you experience today and the Christmas of the past. Enjoy festive lighting displays, live music, horse-and-carriage rides, fire pits, a visit from St. Nicholas, and more, including holiday-themed stories, crafts, and games. Visitors can interact with the denizens of our 19th-century village as they prepare for Christmas Eve and join them in their end-of-the-year festivities at Lantern Light Village: A Holiday to Remember!
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!
