Trinity Church, Boston

(4.4/5 based on 650+ reviews on the web)
Erected in the 19th century, Trinity Church remains one of Boston's most famous places of worship. The current complex, built between 1872 and 1877, was designed by Henry Hobson Richardson and is considered both the birthplace and archetype of the Richardsonian Romanesque style of architecture. It is characterized by its clay roof, use of rough stone, heavy arches, and large tower. Inside you can find a number of colorful murals that cover over 2,000 sq m (21,5000 sq ft), all of which are works of American artists. Take a guided tour to learn more about the history and architecture of this beloved Boston institution. Tours are offered daily; children 15 and under are free with a paying adult. Put Trinity Church and other Boston attractions into our Boston family vacation planner, and watch your holiday take shape.

  • This place charges an extremely exorbitant entrance fee for what you get to see. The church is beautiful, the architecture, the windows, and the interior. But everything other than the pews is roped off. You can't get close to the very cool looking altar, can't go upstairs, and can't get anywhere that isn't on the main floor in the pews. I was pretty bummed I had to fork out $14 for me and wife to just wander around the benches. Our hotel front desk said the tours take you up and around, if this is true I highly suggest taking a tour instead of just going in and looking yourself.
  • Trinity is BEAUTIFUL and it is a must visit if you're in the area. I love this little piece of history in such a big city.
  • The beauty of this church is from inside out. The architecture is awesome.
  • A must-see in Boston. Architects have named it one of the top ten buildings in the U.S. A fascinating place with beauty in every nook and cranny. (Very crabby guy at the welcome desk.) $7 admission, but I didn't see anyone offering tours.
  • Lovely place to explore and soak in a little history.
