  • This is not a big house but it is worth a visit. The entrance fee is minimal. There is plenty of information as to the layout of the house and what would have happened in each room. Amazing to think s...  read more »
  • I enjoyed the exterior of this small house in the middle of the brick and close to a beautiful place. The visit is fast because little things inside. Some of the furniture, dishes. Nothing exceptional but through why not curiosity because this man has still made history deeply from Boston.

  • We toured the Paul Revere home and it was interesting to see how they lived and cooked, however I felt the house move or sway, and had to leave before the other people in our party, so I just went thr...  read more »
  • It is rather incredible that after over 330 years and all the changes made to the city of Boston, this place still stands. The history of the house itself mimics the history of Boston. Many trials, tragedies, and changes through the owners of the house make for a great read. There are still many parts of the house that are still original! Like many floor boards and timbers of the framing. It is a very small home and hard to get around with a large crowd. Best to try and go through it later in the day or when there seems less people around. Definitely want to go through it if the opportunity arises.
  • Great price of admission, and cool story to hear! It was very interesting to hear about Paul Revere, his family, and his contributions. There is a nice mixture of guides telling you about the different things and signs for you to read. I went in the summer, and the heat was not too bad. Definitely a worthwhile stop on the freedom trail.
  • Really fun and informative tour! Learned a ton about the famous early American and his family. The tour takes you all through the house and is a great look at life in the late 1700's. There is a fee to do the tour but I thought it was well worth it!
  • Felt it was pretty meh. The tour is self-guided, which isn't bad as you can get through it at whatever speed is best for you, but overall it's not terribly remarkable compared to other stops along the Freedom Trail.
  • Always love historical places and homes of revolutionaries top my list. Definitely need more $$ to finish out their plans for an education center. Everyone working there was nice and also very informative.
