As it turns out P Revere only lives here a few of his 83 years but this is still a wonderfully preserved example of urban/life in the 1700-1800’s. $5 for adults. Children under 12 $1. Three plus rooms and two floors. Live people on hand...More

My family visited this historical site on a Sunday afternoon. It's a restored home with period-era furniture. Certainly gives you an idea of how the people of the 1700s lived. There's only 3 or 4 rooms to view, but it takes a while to get...More

The old house of Paul Revere is easily accessible along the Freedom Trail. It is just a short walk from the downtown shopping and eating district. Follow the freedom trail pathway and you can’t miss it.

The house is beautifully preserved, and staff were very helpful in answering our questions. The one-woman show was definitely the highlight of the visit! A fantastic few hours for young and old.

Wandering around Boston’s North End can feel like
being transported to Europe. Stroll down Hanover and
Salem streets for the finest Italian restaurants,
bakeries, cafes, and a few boutique shops. Take part
in the big debate as to whether Modern Pastry or
Mike’s serves a better cannoli. Before your food coma
sets in, make sure to stop by historic Paul Revere’s
home, and follow the Freedom Trail to Old North Church

You can probably spend 1 to 1 1/2 hrs if you read all the things in the museum or 1/2 hour to walk through the house
