Fort Nisqually Candlelight Tours

Take a peek into 1859 during Fort Nisqually Living History Museum's annual Candlelight Tours on the evenings of Friday, October 1 and Saturday, October 2. These guided walking tours of the fort take place after dark with only the stars, campfires and candles to light the way.

Along the tour visitors will encounter re-enactors portraying the laborers, servants and gentlemen and ladies of the venerable Hudson's Bay Company. Eavesdrop as they bid farewell to their longtime Chief Factor, Dr. William Tolmie and his family who are moving to Victoria. Traveling through the fort, these people from the past won't be aware of their 21st century visitors. To them, tour groups are merely spirits from the future.

Advance ticket purchase is required for these tours which begin every 15 minutes beginning at 7 pm and last approximately one hour. Admission is $7-$10 per person.
