We went when it was a hot day, so everyone else was at the beach. We had a private guided tour by a marvelous young man named Ben Bernier, and for how young he is, he does an absolutely fabulous job as a very humorous, but well versed historical guide. The tavern is absolutely exquisite, as you can see replica... More

I loved this house! Great artifacts, lots of history and George Washington even stayed there in 1789. They still have artifacts from his visit for you to see.

We enjoyed the tour - lots of information. The guide was very informative; our 10 year old son liked it - younger children may find the information above their understanding.

We drove right by, having noticed the tavern and then realizing the significance turned around and went back. We paid for the three house/tavern tour and were very pleased. The history from before the war of independence until long after was well worth the time spent.

We went to Lexington half expecting a jingoistic historical interpretation of the revolution, however the Lexington Historical Society present a balanced history even putting the Regulars (British soldiers) slant on things in the Monroe Tavern. The temptation is to refer to British and American sides, but as the Monroe Tavern, and other Lexington sites, show this is too simplistic. In... More

Munroe Tavern was very interesting as it presented the British point of view. The tavern was briefly used as a headquarters and field hospital for what was left of the 700 that started out for Concord. Our guide was knowledgeable and very entertaining. I enjoyed hearing the British side of the story.

We stayed in Lexington on our visit to Boston and were so glad we did! The Historical Society gives excellent tours at the Hancock-Clarke House, the Buckman Tavern, and the Munroe Tavern. You can buy one ticket for all 3 and I recommend you do that. They are all within walking distance, but there is parking at each, also. The... More

Unfortunately we arrived 30 minutes before closing, however, the historical society individual stayed after closing to ensure that we heard and saw everything at the Munroe Tavern. He was very knowledgeable and made the tour really interesting and enjoyable. This is a must see for all individuals interested in hearing and seeing where the birth of our nation began. The...

We would have liked to stop but tours were only given on the hour and the opening times were from 12-4 which greatly reduced the times we could tour. Using an audio tour makes more sense...

At the beginning of the Revolutionary War, the British used the Munroe Tavern as a temporary hospital, and during Washington's presidency, Washington dined here. For this attraction, you get a short video and a tour of the house. The tour guide lead us through each room and talked about the items in the room and the related history. In one... More
