We walked from the North Church and Freedom Plaza and were greeted by a brick square with some benchrs with a historic plaque mounted on the wall. All this amid a lot of painted billboards. Next time we'll dig deeper in the tour guide before we start walking.

Stopped in the Paul Revere house during a recent trip to Boston. They've done a great job preserving the house and a lot of interesting information to read while viewing the different parts of the house. We always hear about Paul Revere in the text books and was nice to learn a little bit more about his life and how... More

I visited here several times as a kid and it was even better than I remember. The docents were very knowledgeable and entertaining. I am anxious to see what the new welcome center will look like!

It's amazing to think that some of the discussions regarding our country's founding occurred in this house. It is very similar to other old homes, but PAUL REVERE lived in this one! Definitely worth a stop.

The Paul Revere House is located in the North End. The house itself is only like 4-5 rooms and it can become a little bit cramped. The house is also a little bit lopsided but I suppose that's what happens after it has been there for so long :) I'm not really sure if there was a backyard because they... More

You can't see anything other than the exterior from the street and the admission is worth it! There is a huge construction project going on next to the house to improve accessibility. Both floors of the house have a well informed docent available to share facts and answer questions. The docents, combined with 90% of the infrastructure still in tact... More

It is great that they have preserved Paul Revere's house. It is like stepping back into time. We learned a lot about Paul Revere while in Boston that history books never mentioned. Now a big fan of his! It is amazing what some people did that many years ago. Much more than many do today even with the modern conveniences... More

I visited The Paul Revere House while touring the city. I love history. I was disappointed in how they run the house. You pay about $3.50 donation to preserve the house. That's great, but what bothers me is that they let in way too many people at one time! Keep in mind this house is hundreds of years old, the... More

I'm a history buff, so I thoroughly enjoyed this. Price is reasonably, and it's a great thing to do with the family. My kids (11 and 9) were very interested throughout the tour.
