  • A could not believe so many people could live in this small house. It was an amazing look into the history of the USA. The steward was very knowledgeable and I would recommend a visit to anyone while ...  more »
  • 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 »

  • 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 cool to see the house of Paul Revere. The tour is really short, so if you have smaller kids, this one is probably a good one. Only $5/adult, so its pretty cheap, and there is some cool silverware Revere created inside, as well as furniture original to Revere. When my wife and I were there, there was a City of Boston archaeologist on-site, doing a dig, and he was explaining what he was doing, and showing some of the stuff he came across, and that was very cool.
  • Something to do in Boston. Perfect for small kids. 5-15 minuets long.
  • I wish we have more time to browse through the items in this museum. A true historical site which will make you think about what our forefathers were in the past and the struggle that they been through so we can have freedom. The small entrance fee is reasonable as it is relatively small but packed with information.
  • This was a great historical stop on my Boston trip. Very informative and friendly staff!
