  • This is a tiny wooden building amongst all of the stone and brick higher rise. It has been very well restored and gives you a feeling of how life was in the 1700's.  more »

  • This was a well-spent $5. I had some time after breakfast in the North End, so I walked by the Paul Revere House to see if I'd like to tour it. There aren't any guided tours, however, there are tour guides on the first and second floors of the house to add commentary and answer questions. I enjoyed making it self-paced. It's like a "shot of history" - 15 minutes and you're done. I recommend!
  • This was a really great example of architecture from the 1600s. It's pretty small, but it was definitely worth the $3 entrance price. It only takes about a maximum of 30 minutes to walk through. Stop in here if you are doing the freedom trail!
  • Nice historical site. My only gripe is they prohibit pictures... including non-flash. I could understand no flash devices, but this should be open to pics. House is located in Italian district. Go try Mikes Pastries afterward.
  • The Boston National Historical sites are so well maintained. The Freedom Trail is a must; make sure to take the time to walk it, and you won't regret it. That said, the Paul Revere house is fine, but don't feel bad if you don't actually go inside. You aren't missing a lot.
  • Really small house but very informative! The house was great the staff were amazingly nice and gave a lot of information !
