The Paul Revere House is the home of legendary patriot Paul Revere, where he began the famous “Midnight Ride.” A rare example of 17th-century urban architecture, and a National Historic Landmark, it is the oldest remaining structure in downtown...more

We visited while walking the Freedom Trail and having a delicious lunch in the North End. There is a small fee to enter but you see where one of our most patriots once lived. It is self guided but there are people there that do...More
Self guided visit. Plenty of employees around the home that were able to answer any questions that you had. Informative, quite interesting and really neat to see a part of American history. You cannot take pictures of the inside of the home, certain areas could...More
We stopped here as we were walking along the freedom trail. Very cheap, we had five people get in for about $25 I believe it was. Showed history and was interesting. Gift shop was very expensive but that's how it is everywhere at gift shops.
What is a trip to Boston without visiting the beloved home of Paul Revere. We visited on a Wednesday afternoon in October. Very low crowds. We purchased the ticket and went inside for the tour. It’s a small house, but really allowed you to see...More
Paul Revere is a much (with apologies) revered character in the fight for freedom from the thrall of the British. It is, thus, doubly interesting; firstly to see the house in which he and his family lived and secondly to see a house of this...More
We had a great time touring Paul Revere's house. In every room there is someone who is friendly, knowledgeable, and passionate about history. We greatly enjoyed the experience and visiting Paul Revere's house really added to our understanding of Boston history. Strongly recommend!
While doing the Freedom Trail, we had to stop in and take a look around. This is a well-preserved piece of history that I'm very happy to have seen. Well worth the $5 per person admission. The people inside the house were engaging and well-informed,...More
Very cool glance into history. The house is quite small with two bedrooms. There were 2-3 employees working who were knowledgeable. We went around dusk and due to historical accuracy the house was very dark inside so I would recommend going during the daylight for...More
This was a perfect stop on our downtown Boston walk. It only costs $5 for adults and $1 for kids. Bring cash! The house is a nice historical venue, however the written displays and the staff are the most significant source of information. If you...More
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.

It's been a few years since I was on the HopOn/Off Trolley, but recall hopping off when the Old North Church (on the Freedom Trail) was in front of us. The Paul Revere House is about three short blocks away (close to the Freedom Trail). I visited both in July. We found everything on the North End walkable because the blocks are old, short and irregular. The trolley follows much of the Freedom Trail so, if you visit either of the above, you'll be very close to the other. Both are immensely enjoyable.

nononsense is correct.

If you do decide to drive, try one of the parking lots at the intersection of Atlantic Avenue and Fleet Street for the shortest walk AND the best rates. Walk up Fleet Street and turn left on Moon Street to reach the museum.
Also, does anyone know of the names of these two restuarants in the North End? One is next to the Paul Revere House, it is tiny and dark with exposed brick. The other one, I'm not sure what street it is on, but the inside is bright and they have murals of cracked archways painted on the walls? Also, what is your favorite restaurant in the North End? Thanks so much!!

Hi Kiwi4422, Mamma Maria's is in a brick townhouse located at 3 North Sq., I think you might mean that one for having exposed brick in that exact vicinity. Limoncellos at 90 North Sq. has murals painted on the wall, both of these establishments are located on the same street as where Paul Revere resided. There's also a Carmen's located at 33 North Sq. With me, your question really can't be answered with an exact restaurant though regarding the murals of cracked archways...More
Printing Press?? (6 Replies)
Do any of you know of a small museum that opened recently (last 2 years or so) that is focused on the old-time printing press for newspaper? I read about it and it sounded interesting but I can't remember anything else about it. It might be located in the North End and/or near the Paul Revere house. We are visiting for Christmas. Thanks for any suggestions!

Thanks for that information. I was able to find my notes and it is the Printing Offices of Edes and Gill behind the Old North Church.
Tour de New England...Day 8: Boston (9 Replies)
Wednesday 9/16/09 The best way to really experience a city is to walk it...and that would be the agenda on Day 8. Took the Red Line T to Park St. and began by exploring the Boston Public Garden...very pretty. Was nearly swarmed by a horde of hungry ducks after throwing them a few bread crumbs. Walked through the Boston Common and began following the red bricks of the 2.5 mile, 16-sight Freedom Trail. After the 1st few stops, had to make an appointed detour to the Bromfield Camera store to...More

Wow! That's an impressive day... and an impressive report as well.
