Boston National Historical Park is a unique collaboration of federally, municipally, and privately owned and operated historic sites associated with the colonial struggle for independence and the birth and growth of the nation. Boston National Historical Park is part of the National Parks of Boston.
Most of the park is along Boston's Freedom Trail®. The 2.5 mile (4 km) Freedom Trail® is marked by a red brick or painted line weaving through Downtown Boston, the North End, and Charlestown. The trail itself is outdoors and open year round. Most visitors chose to walk all or portions of the trail to reach the historic sites along the way. Frequently, they use guide books, park brochures, or free National Park Service mobile app.
The major park and park partner sites along the trail are typically open every day, however exact hours vary site to site and are often dictated by season. Plan your Visit to get started with site hours, locations, and schedules.
