General Scheduling Information

If you would like to schedule a Who Hung the Lanterns? or Behind the Scenes program you MUST make a reservation. In fairness to all our visitors, we ask you to schedule your program at least two weeks in advance.

You DO NOT have a reservation until we have confirmed
arrangements and you have received a written confirmation.

Reservations are not taken for the Freedom Trail Drop-In. Our Guide staff is available to give the Brief Presentation and answer questions at any time during our regular visitor hours.
You will not receive any confirmation if you contact us to schedule a Drop-In.

Times and Days
School programs are scheduled Monday through Friday between 9:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m.

Costs vary with the length of the program and are listed with the individual program descriptions.
There is a minimum $30 fee per program.

The Old North Foundation has grant funding to cover program and transportation costs for a limited
number of groups. Contact the education department at schoolprograms@oldnorth.com to learn more.

Payment for your program is due 14 days prior to your visit. Information on how and where to send
payment will be included in your confirmation letter.

Group Size
Group size limits vary and are listed with the individual program descriptions.

We require 1 adult chaperone for every 10 students; 1 adult for every 5 students is included free
of charge. Each additional adult accompanying the group is charged the program fee.

Lunch Facilities
We do not have indoor lunch space. However, there are many public parks where you may picnic
outside within short walking distance of the Old North that we can direct you to.

Confirmation (Who Hung the Lanterns? and Behind the Scenes only)
A written confirmation will be mailed prior to your scheduled program. It will include instructions
for program payment, bus drop-off information, and pre-visit classroom lesson plans.

If you must cancel a tour or program, please contact us at least one week in advance. Refunds cannot
be made for cancellations after that time. Programs cancelled due to inclement weather will be
rescheduled for a later date, if possible.
