As I opened the doors to come into this beautiful church, it took my breath away and brought tears to my eyes. It is by far the most beautiful piece of architecture ever built, other than the Sistine Chapel. Do not pass this up. $7 to guide yourself through.

The church is impressive, but really not that old. What sets it apart for me is the incredible LaFarge stained glass windows - unlike any others. I will visit here again, just to see the windows sparkle.

This is one of the most beautiful churches I have ever seen. Well worth the $7 donation to sit in this majestic wonder.

This church is absolutely beautiful inside and out but unfortunately they have a terrible staff. We visited a number of churches while on vacation and the staff at Trinity Church was the epitome of what Christians should not be. I had read on the website you could come in for free and look around, but a young man at the... More

H.H. Richardson's masterpiece. Loved it Loved it Loved it. If you are into architecture do not miss this. Even if you're not into architecture...don't miss this. My husband could care less, but when we walked out he commented on the beauty a couple of times. You can get great pictures and during the day take photos of the church's reflection... More

On a recent trip to Boston we walked by the Trinity Church many times but always at times that it was closed. We finally got the chance to go in and it was a worthwhile visit. There is a $7 entrance fee and they do offer a $2 military discount. From outside we could tell the church had many stained... More

I really, really wanted to see this church and was so excited! We had seen Old North Church, Park Street Church and Kings Chapel - all great, but I had hear this church was stunning! I was so disappointed to find out we had to pay $7 for a self guided tour. They wouldn't even let you in the sanctuary... More

Trinity Church. You must see the inside of this architectural marvel. Its a donation entry and any amount is well worth it!

While most people think of Boston for it's American History, the Trinity Church is a piece of Architectural History. It's a beautiful church to begin with, but the story of it's construction is as interesting as the Freedom Trail. It is the only building that has remained on the AIA's list of 10 most important buildings since the list was... More

This church is very beautiful on the outside, with interesting architecture, but if you only have a day in Boston, there are so many more wonderfully historic sites to see. It wasn't worth $7 for us to go inside. A donation box might feel better than a required fee and a gift shop inside the church.
