One of the least expensive things to do in Boston - very cool. The displays are great the docents informative and it only takes 15-20 minutes to walk through the whole house.

The house has been restored to it's 1700's state. It's very informative, good value for money. Good for history buffs.

This isn't some great historic house nor I suspect is it exactly as revere had it but the house offers a fitting celebration and memorial to revere. Not only does one get a sense of his achievements and life but also his work as a silversmith. Worth the walk.

We waited outside in the pouring rain for 15 minutes, only to be told once we got into the house that the school group ahead of us would be a while, so we should go around them. We ended up touring the whole place in less than 10 minutes. This attraction is indeed historic, but it needs to up its... More

I found the home quaint and ordinary. I found myself wondering what it was like for anyone to live in Revere's time. It amazes me how many great people live very ordinary lives.

Revere was accompanied by two other riders, Williams Dawes and Samuel Prescott. Paul Revere's House is the landmark for finding the many wonderful "Little Italy restaurants." We have been visiting Boston for 45 years. Tis a grand week to visit Boston! Given our luxury suites at the Marriott’s Customs House, spend lots of time walking and touring various sites. We...

I loved visiting here, you try to picture how the surroundings were when the house itself wasn't enclosed so tightly by the 21st century. The house is so historical from the low ceilings to the tiny stairs and the stories told by the employees are great and fun. Will definitely be returning. It is a bit of a walk but... More

The first time I visited Boston I walked the Freedom Trail and visited Paul Revere's home. It was the first time I saw our American history and it was wonderful. On my last visit to Boston, I revisited the Freedom Trail and the Paul Revere House and it was just as wonderful. It's hard to believe that in the early... More

Of course this being one of the oldest homes in Boston, it was a must do on my list. What I wasn't expecting is how small the home is, considering he had 16 kids!!! I believe though that they only had part of the home restored, as there was only a few rooms to walk thru, and before you know... More

At $3.50 for adult admission I would definitely say make this stop on the Freedom Trail, but it is super tiny and won't take very long. It is fairly dark inside and can get cramped very fast. But the furnishings are interesting and many of them are actual Revere pieces.
