  • This is more of a reconstruction than a preserved or conserved building. The room interpreters were pleasant but seem more imaginative than factual (much like the stories surrounding Revere himself). 
  • The house itself is very small, only two floors but it offers you a glimpse on how people lived in the colonial days. The tour guides are very knowledgeable and happy to answer any questions. I am gla...  more »
  • It's nice to see when you walking by, but not that special. It's part of the Freedom Trail, so if you walking this trail you will automatically walk by.

  • Really,really nice staff. Would recommend. This is a really nice historical sight that I would definitely wouldn't mind visiting again. I really appreciate the staff being so kind and knowledgeable the whole entire tour. The house is really cool and historical, I'm really glad that it was preserved and that I got to visit it. Also, there is a really good Italian restaurant right next door to it.
  • 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.
  • Small but as the oldest home in Boston and a historical home, it's worth seeing. Make sure to ask questions of the tour guides, they were very knowledgeable.
  • You have to pay cash to enter it's small and tight like an old house would've been but my son loved it. so cool to teach them history and that way
  • 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!
