On our way to the north part of Boston, the next thing on the famous Freedom Trail, we saw the wooden house of the great American patriot, the Paul Revere House. It is situated in North Square Street, that is in the sequel of the North Street, that takes its source near the Faneuil Hall, which account i made recently.... More

The Paul Revere House is on the Freedom Trail. They charge admission. I guess that’s necessary to help raise funds for the upkeep and maintenance. It is one of, if not the last surviving house from the period in that block. You are not in the house very long, as the line moves along. They give you a brief description... More

WE stopped here on our trolley tour. You had to pay to go in but it was interesting to see. It is the only thing on the street that survived a fire many years ago.

Paul Revere's house is a must for a piece off American history but it's nothing to brag about. The entrance fee is minima but compared to what you see and learn its just about right. Nothing more than the house of Paul Revere and a bunch of signs to read.

It is an interesting part of our history, but it is three rooms with a little spiel and they quickly usher you out the door. Not sure if it was worth the admission fee for a basic 10 minute tour.

I visited with my husband and two children ages 5 & 7. I think maybe the downstairs guide had given his spiel about 1,000 times too many. Monotone and robotic. However, when my kids started asking questions both the downstairs and upstairs guides perked up. The upstairs guide didn't even have a spiel. She was pleasant enough but only said... More

I visited with my 4 kids, ages 9-14. I was surprised to find on a weekday in the fall that there was a short wait at the ticket booth. The admission is cheap but we probably spent 15 minutes there tops. If you are an adult interested in colonial houses or antiques and willing to read signs, I am sure... More

This tiny but substantial house set amongst the tall buildings of Boston was the home of Paul Revere. We visited it as part of the Freedom Trail and found it of considerable interest. Each room is staffed by an informative guide.

We spent a lot of time in the North End and visiting the Paul Revere House was a worth a stop. It cost a few bucks to get in so a pretty cheap attraction. Most of the house is open and you are able to walk around at your own pace. There is no tour guide, but very knowledgeable people... More
