“interesting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2013

Interesting site and costs only a few bucks. Not much information was provided inside the house and so you can be in and out in 10 minutes. Still worthwhile to visit, though.

“OK house and house information; very little about how he shaped US history”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

No parking outside; tough to read small placards inside; staff was very informative and knowledgeable. This house is just one small part of the thread that is US history, and you will need to understand this context before going inside; because you don't get the big picture information inside...it's all about the house and Paul Revere after his ride. Many of the items in the house were not his or his family’s and that was a bit disconcerting. Very little in the house talked of his personality or impact to American history overall. There is much more information about what his actions were and his impact to American history online. When we talk about American icons and the roles they played in shaping US history, this house didn’t do Paul Revere any justice.

“Interesting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

We found the staff to be very informative, but only when we asked specific questions. Take the time to read the information plaques in each of the few rooms.

“Paul Revere House”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

Nice quick stop for some historical culture. Small fee to pay, but the Staff are very informative and helpful. Amazing to think that when Paul Revere bought the house, it was ALREADY 90 years old.

“Interesting Stop on the Freedom Trail”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

My best friend, husband, and I were walking the Freedom Trail, and this was one of the sites that we were looking forward to seeing. It is $3.50 per person to enter, which I thought was reasonable. It is a self guided tour with a room downstairs, and two rooms upstairs. There are cards to explain what you are looking at. There is also one person upstairs and one downstairs who work there and answer questions. They were both engaging with the people and were answering questions about Paul Revere, and the famous Midnight Ride. I did learn some interesting facts. We stayed maybe about 15 minutes. You do not need much time to investigate this.

I would recommend to history buffs and anyone looking for a light self guided tour.
