Night Tours: Summer Twilight

May 6 @ 6:00 pm - September 4 @ 10:00 pm


Thursday – Sunday evenings (6 pm – 10 pm)
May 6 to September 4, 2022

Experience Eastern State Penitentiary’s historic cellblocks as the sun goes down. Admission to Night Tours: Summer Twilight includes everything Eastern State offers by day (self-guided audio tour, exhibits, artist installations) and more! Grab a Triple Bottom Brewing Company beer, soft drink, or snack and relax outdoors in The Fair Chance Beer Garden with incredible views of the city skyline. Reflect on Eastern State’s history and the legacy of criminal justice reform through hands-on activities like trivia, letter-writing, and collaborative art projects. Look up at the dark, night sky as the searchlight shines out from the central guard tower.

Night Tours: Summer Twilight runs Thursday through Sunday evenings from May 6 to September 4. Tickets are available online and at the door; however, we strongly recommend purchasing your tickets online in advance to ensure entry. Ticket prices vary by evening, starting at $19. Eastern State members receive free admission. Discounted rates are available for groups of 15+. Visit www.EasternState.org/NightTours for more information and to plan your visit.
