Seeing the home of this incredible silversmith, patriot, and one who could easily be called the "Father of Forensic Dentistry," is a study in non-stop amazement. This should be a must for every child to see first-hand what can truly be accomplished if you set your mind to it.

The guided tour is wonderful. If you have boys like me, 20, 15, & 8, who like to keep things quick and simple, the self guided tour is also wonderful just seeing the house preserved and nestled in the newer growing world all around it is worth it.

This house is really small and there's not much of a tour. There are little signs for you to read and the guy on the first floor did tell us some facts. But it only costs $3.50 a person so it's worth it to see such an old house where Paul Revere lived.

Situated on the freedom trail this is a must see. Only $3.50 adult entry its inexpensive however it's very small inside. But. You must visit and see how people lived back in the day. It is furnished with period furniture. Worth the visit but you will probably only spend about 25 mins there.

Okay, I get Paul Revere lived in a small house, but this place was crowded. Maybe control the traffic flow a little better? So many people crammed into a little room and curvy stairwell got me sweating (not to mention worrying about the extremely creaky floor giving way). Part of the Go Boston card, came here on July 4 (maybe... More

Walking the Freedom Trail you will come upon Paul Revere's home. It is small, but worth a visit to enhance the history of the trail. As you walk around you can ask questions of the staff, who are knowledgeable. We were there when a group of school children were also there, so we got to hear some stories in a... More

Visited here on a baking hot day but it was well worth the walk. The building has been very well preserved and restored and the entry fee of $3.50 is a bargain. Only draw back is you can't take photos. The guides inside are very knowledgeable which makes the visit even better.

It was cool to see the architecture of that era but I was there for Paul Revere info more than seeing a house that has no square lines.

This small attraction charged admittance and did not allow for pictures. Lots of interesting artifacts but the rooms are very blocked off. The staff is very knowledgable about Mr. Revere's life.

Staying in North End

Neighborhood Profile
North End
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 and Copp’s Hill Burying Ground. Take a rest in a cafe on Hanover street and observe the quirky, European character of the North End.
