The cost to visit the sanctuary is a $7 donation for adults. It is definitely worth it. We walked in and someone was playing the organ. Chilling! The most beautiful stained glass I have ever seen. Full of spirit and history.

This should definitely be a stop in your tour of Boston. The buidling is amazing, the window paintings out of the world. And the price is right.

Trinity Church is one of Boston's landmarks (right across the square from the Public Library). There is a modest fee to enter the church and you receive a guide which tells of its founding, the religious art, and its current function. It is much darker inside than I anticipated and had a somber quality. The organist was practicing when we... More

We were lucky enough to sit in on a free organ recital. Not that I am really into organ recitals...but the combination of a magnificent pipe organ in that church is really amazing. The architecture, stained glass, and history is just amazing...AND ALL FREE.

Trinity Church is definitely one of the landmarks of Boston. We didn't have time to explore the interior. However, from what I could see through the main doors, the stained glass windows looked amazing. Unfortunate that they charge usd7 per person, same price whether one joins the guided tour or just want a quick look inside. (Compare to St Patrick's... More

By the time I reached Copley Square there was such a violent wind that many people were scattering to get into any safe place. I had some difficulty getting the doors open to the Church but the struggle was worth it. After going to the basement bookshop to purchase a ticket, I walked back upstairs and entered the Chancel.

We were very excited to attend this concert by the St. Paul Cathedral's Choir, over from London for the first time since 1953. What an event. We had a delightful time in a lovely venue, on comfortable, bench seats with a well-mannered crowd. Just about perfect! If you're in Copley Square be sure to visit this wonderful old church. There...

A beautiful church designed by one of Boston's most famous and grifted architects -- you will see elements if its design in other buildings he created around Boston. You don't have to go inside to enjoy it -- the exterior is magnificent and it has become a central place for people who gather in the square or walk past every... More

We went during Holy Week so it turned out to be free but even if it wasn't I would say it is worth the visit. The outside of the church is an architectural beauty but the real sight to behold is the interior. The entire ceiling of the church and its interior walls (totaling over 21,000 sq ft) are meticulously... More

We got there late enough in the day that the tours were over with. The sign to the ticket place was misleading. Ended up walking around entire building before finally found someone to tell us where to go in. We were doing a self guided tour with our ticket but they said we could come back the following day to... More
