The house itself was ok does not take long to visit. What made this just an average tour is the staff. They hurry you along and don't want to be their and don't answer the questions you may have. It is not a tour you walk in yourself then their is a person downstairs and one upstairs but neither were... More

Glad to have had the opportunity to visit this home which has been beautifully restored! The docent was very knowledgeable and we appreciated her taking the time to share. Although it is very small, we still enjoyed it very much! The cost is reasonable compared to other attractions in Boston. I would not have missed this opportunity to make history... More

Unless you are a hardcore history buff, I would not bother paying the entry fee to this place. It's mostly been restored so you are seeing little of the original structure (maybe a fireplace, that's about it). You also aren't supposed to bring a coffee inside but I wasn't told that until I was up on the second floor. Another... More

I was a bit disappointed by this house tour. Not very many pieces of Revere ware on display, although there were a few and one of his bells. I truly expected to see more of his work. Additionally, while the house has had some restoration done, I don't think all of it was done with the period in mind. I... More

I took one (insert shifty eyes). It's a small house, but interesting. Massive fireplace! Nice furniture. You have to be able to climb stairs, and if I'm being honest, you can't be too large.

The house has been restored to what it looked like during Paul Revere's time living there and they have furniture that was actually used by the Revere family. The docents inside the house were knowledgeable. The throughput for buying tickets and touring the house is congested. When one person asked a question at the doorway to the upstairs it caused...

Old house. No photos allowed inside. Pauls house is squished in amongst modern buildings and the admission booth in front of it detracts from the historical feel. Wandering The Freedom trail so checked it out. Inside u see the living area with huge fireplace then go upstairs to bedrooms with their fireplaces. In your imagination u can feel the freezing...

The first two people we asked for directions gave us the wrong information. We walked around and later on, found it but they were about to close. My husband was not too upset because we visited the church where Paul Revere and his family used to attend. We even went inside the special pew/cubicle owned by the family. As we... More

The house wasn't open when we passed on the Freedom trail. However we tagged onto the back of a French tour group and listened in while the guide described about the evil British and how the French basically won the war of Independence for the Americans. Very amusing!

We chose in the end not to go in. Too many people for such a small place and the house is not that big. It's just as cool to check out from the outside. I'm still glad we came here so we can say we did.

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.
