  • The Paul Revere house is very historic for obvious reasons. It`s in the North End bunched in between other buildings. It`s easy to get to walking or trolley tour. If you like history it`s worth the st...  more »
  • It's always so interesting to me to see how people lived back then. In our current world of excess, Paul Revere's house really shows how he lived. Some of the flooring, beams, windows and furniture ar...  more »

  • Literally nothing to do or see. You enter one room and that is it. I went with my family and my friends family for $25 and it was a big waste of time and money. I highly recommend that you DO NOT COME HERE. Also the tour was 1-2 minutes and the tour guide didn’t say anything he just left in the room and we had to read the tow sign that we’re the.
  • It was kind of small and tight to walk around but cool factor is a 10.... History alone is terrific... Overall 5 stars
  • The price of entry was very fair at $5 per person. Tour was self guided - and they had knowledgeable tour guides available to answer any questions. Small gift shop was also available. Would recommend visiting this attraction before leaving Boston.
  • Historic site but the exhibits are quite underwhelming. For a man of Revere's stature, I was hoping to see an in-depth presentation of his life story and achievements, perhaps in a chronological fashion so that it's easy to follow. This presentation is typical of similar museums, such as the Hamilton Grange in New York, which is dedicated to Alexander Hamilton. And this is possible even with limited available space. I really hope they can curate a more comprehensive collection. I also do not understand why they don't allow pictures, again something that is allowed in many museums the world over.
  • Very neat place and the museum folks really knew EVERYTHING we asked them about. Very friendly and super interesting. I would highly recommend.
