This house is such a treasure! We are so lucky people chose to restore and preserve this site. Seeing how people lived in this house during the colonial era is enlightening. We enjoyed the displays and the insight into the life of a founding father.

This house was interesting, but not so much that it's a must-see. Most of the things in the house are just items "like" would have been in his house, and not enough silver on display for me. I really wanted to see silver! Kind of high-priced for what it is.

This house is really well preserved and it obviously does have historical value. If you only have one day to try and fit all the things you want to see, you could past this up for others, in my opinion. Not only is it a small home, not all of the home is shown. It was very packed with people,... More

It is amazing to walk into Paul Revere's house! It is hard to believe that 19 people lived in such a small house. The house has been well preserved and sits amongst modern high-rises. There is also a small gift shop next door.

People complain about the price, they complain about not being able to take pictures, about it being too crowded, etc... I guess we got lucky, because when we went on Thursday July 17th, not long after they opened, there were no crowds. I put away my camera, put the cell phone on silent and the kids and I stepped inside... More

Paul Revere House is tucked away on a side street, so it is easily missed. It is a very small place and somewhat crowded. There are stairs to climb. It was interesting to see where he lived with 16 kids. Self-guided tour. Doesn't take even an hour to walk through it.

It is worth paying the small fee to see this place. You take a self guided tour through the house and there are lots of little info boards along the way. There was also a staff member inside to answer any questions.

First of all, no photography is allowed at all. I understand not allowing flashes, but no pictures at all? The house has been nicely preserved/restored, and it's interesting to see how people lived in Colonial times. But I've been to other historical homes and places in Boston, Philadelphia, and elsewhere, and I think this could be much better. They are... More

We visited The Paul Revere House on July 4th. It was a rainy day, so the crowds weren't bad. It's not a large house by today's standards and to think how many people lived in it at the same time is a bit daunting. There are staff members on each floor to explain things and answer your questions. The young... More

Our family of 5 enjoyed our visit to Paul Revere's house. It is small as one would expect from this time period. It is a self guided tour. The signs are very informative to tell you the history about each room. There was also a staff member on each floor to explain things and answer questions. There are also artifacts... More
