History Tours of The Battery

Join us for guided tours of The Battery. Learn about the park’s rich history, many important landmarks and monuments, SeaGlass Carousel, beautiful perennial gardens designed by renowned Dutch garden designer Piet Oudolf, and so much more!

When: Tours are offered at various times throughout the week, and are available for registration at least one month in advance. View all available offerings through the calendar above.

Tours are approximately 45 minutes. Please arrive a few minutes early as the tour will begin right on time. Please note that tours will not happen in the rain — we will do our best to alert you in advance, but sometimes the forecast changes suddenly! Please reach out if you have questions about the weather forecast and its impact on your reservation.

Sign up: RSVP to reserve your spot: select a tour date through the calendar above, and then click the “Tickets” button to complete your registration. If you don’t have a ticket you’re still welcome to drop in on a tour, though if space is limited those with reservations will receive first priority.

Where: Meet in front of SeaGlass Carousel. Look for our tour guide carrying a sign to identify themselves.
