I was a little disappointed in this self-guided home tour, but I don't really know why. I don't know what I was expecting, but it wan't what I saw. Taken as a whole the Freedom Trail is a great history lesson, and this is just one small piece of it, and you should take it for what it is. I'm... More

If you've been to Colonial Williamsburg, some of these old houses all begin to look alike, feel alike, sound alike. But the Revere House is part of the Freedom Trail through Boston and this house and the Old North Church are both in Little Italy- so try to time your visit to have lunch or dinner at one of the...

Walking through this house will take you about 10 minutes and cost $3.50 (for an adult) but its great to see this piece of history. To think that there were 15 people living in this tiny house at one time is just crazy! There isn't much to see, but it was worth the stop. Went on a Saturday afternoon and... More

First tip-go on a Saturday if you can. There are live demonstrations in the courtyard on Saturdays about colonial life. We went on a saturday for the tailor demonstration. Being a seamstress, I was so excited. It was awesome! The house itself is the oldest original building in Boston. It is well preserved and very intriguing to imagine the lives... More

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
