Inexpensive to visit, $3.50 a person, less for seniors and students, very short walk through self-guided tour, some period items and furniture and some artifacts from Paul Revere and his family. He had 16 children with 2 different wives, but 5 of the children died in infancy. His first wife died shortly after delivery of his 8th child. Worth a... More

Only a couple dollars to go in. Was very interesting to see how they lived. It was furnished from the period, there were few pieces that were in the original house. Not a long tour at all.

This small house, dating back to 1680, is an interesting stopoff on the Freedom Trail but was not as good as I thought it would be. It's great that it has been preserved so people can see what houses used to look like in this area. I felt more could have been made of this historic building and it's historical... More

My wife really wanted to see this place. We had been all over downtown Boston, and we were headed to the festival in the North End. Since it was in the same neighborhood, we stopped. It turned out to be worth the stop. Lots of history and some period pieces in the home. However, none of the pieces belonged to... More

It's pretty cool being able to tour a colonial home and seeing how Paul Revere, and his contemporaries, lived. In addition to examining the house itself and the furnishings, you can check out some Paul Revere artifacts. Neat.

I think there is a lot of potential here. The staff stationed in the house were helpful, but left me with something to be desired. They did seem to be knowledgeable about the house, but perhaps a bit awkward when speaking with the public. With more enthusiasm around sharing their knowledge (perhaps more training or experience) I think they could... More

Never had visited the Paul Revere house prior to this. Really enjoyed seeing a glimpse into the life of a great man. Who knew...he had 16 children between his two wives! Great artifacts, guide on first floor was informative. There is no photography allowed in the house itself. Whole tour takes 20 mins top...longer if you are a reader of... More

We visited the home and were truly amazed at the size of the home, especially the master bedroom. It was very interesting to walk the same floors and to envision how it must have been to live in that space. I believe the tour was about $3.00 well worth it. If you have problems with steps/stairs, you may only experience... More

This was a nice neat/clean home of Paul Revere's. Only thing is some guides were inside (Sun afternoon, not real crowded) and just stared, offering no tour and speech. Only $3.50, great thing to do on freedom trail. NO bathrooms on sight.

What a great experience to visit the home of this patriot. The docents in each room added to the experience with tales of his life. The signs in each room give interesting information.
