  • My tween daughter and I visited in the morning of July 6 - nice walk through of the building. There is an included audio tour which describes all of the items. We did not stay more than 15 minutes, so we used it for one or two items. Be sure not to miss the exhibited original door with the bullet hole (there's an arrow pointing to it). This is included with the Boston Go Card and I recommend the stop.
  • We really enjoyed visiting the Buckman Tavern. Staff are dressed in revolutionary war period clothing and are welcoming and helpful. Park at the depot lot for $4 and get to the tavern with a 5 minute walk.
  • Great place for those interested in history. Gathering place for the local militia (Minutemen) and even has some holes from musket-balls. As some disappointed Google Reviewers have noted, it's not a functioning tavern/bar.
  • I came here on a school trip and had a great time with my friends.
  • Very cool historic place.
