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.

A house with chambers arranged or decorated with stuff from around 1800. This is not a poor home, there might be people living in worse conditions even today ! Revere was not poor, so it might give a good picture of how rich or nearly rich people lived in the good old days. This is one of the best houses... More

Admission to the house is only $3.50 for adults. The tour is super brief, two rooms on each floor. The guides on each floor are incredibly knowledgeable and made the visit worthwhile. The courtyard area is under construction so it is a bit hectic in the yard surrounding the house. Great that Boston is preserving the site. Still can't fathom... More

My daughter and I really enjoyed visiting the Paul Revere House during our walk of the Freedom Trail. Neither one of us knew much about him except for his famous ride. We were pleasantly surprised to learn that he was a gold and silver smith, he inherited his father's gold smith shop, that he was a good business man who... More

We really enjoyed the Paul Revere House. We felt the employees really knew their history of not just the house but the time period too. It was nice to see the history being preserved in such a historical city.

My family toured the Paul Revere House while in Boston. It is small, but there is so much history. The home is in great condition and it is great that it is still here to tour. I liked the fact that they entertained in the bedroom! The home was built in 1681. The north area of Boston is very pretty... More

If you are at all claustrophobic, don't go. They do not limit how many people are in the small viewing areas at one time. On a summer's day, it is very hot and crowded, difficult to see anything or to have time to read the placards. We were packed in like sardines. On the other hand, it is interesting seeing... More

I enjoyed the information given at the Paul Revere House regarding it's history. It's a on a cobble stone street, tucked back into the heart of the city. It's easy to imagine what it would have been like to walk the streets during that time.
