Online ticket purchase

Come join us for a walking tour of old Fort Stanton in the moonlight  and enjoy living history scenarios that will take you back to another time and place. Docents will lead you through Fort Stanton and tell you the history of the Fort as you go, stopping at different locations to watch reenactments of the daily life of the people that lived and traded at Fort Stanton. Join us as soldiers return from patrols, perform picket duties, plan for the next day’s activities and many other historically appropriate vignettes that will bring the 19th century experience at Fort Stanton to life.


How do I get tickets for a tour?

The only way to attend this very special program is to purchase your ticket in advance online or by purchasing your tickets at the Fort Stanton Museum during regular business hours. Tickets are $5 per person, but children 15 & under are admitted free of charge.

Space is limited to the first 20 people that sign up for each of the following tour times: 6:30, 6:45, 7:00, 7:15, 7:30, 7:45, 8:00, 8:15, 8:30, 8:45, 9:00, and 9:15. To make a reservation online, please go to the Lantern Tour ticket page and be prepared to pay by credit card via PayPal to secure your reservation.

Attendees will be requested to arrive at least 15 minutes before their tour and they will gather at the Fort Stanton Museum where they will meet their guide before going on tour. Museum personnel will be on hand to show you where to park.

All attendees should be prepared to walk on sometimes uneven ground.
