Faneuil Hall will close on December 31 at 6 p.m. and reopen in the spring of 2018.

Faneuil Hall, one of the most historically significant buildings in Boston, will undergo a major renovation, which includes:

  • Upgrades to heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems that will provide more comfortable control of heating and cooling through a new building management system.
  • Upgrades to the fire alarm.
  • A new handicap chair lift for the Great Hall stage.
  • Replacement of an elevator to increase accessibility and mobility.

To accommodate the renovation, Faneuil Hall will close to the public on Sunday, December 31 at 6 p.m. and will reopen in spring of 2018.

Faneuil Hall last underwent a major renovation in 1990-91.

Faneuil Hall Marketplace, adjacent to historic Faneuil Hall, that includes historic Quincy Market and the North and South Market buildings, remains open.
