A piece of history worth seeing. Worth the small admission $5...and the guides are very knowledgeable and give interesting facts if you ask them. There is not much to it, so don't expect it to be a long stop, but it really gives you a feel for the time.

This is all about Boston history. If you are doing the Freedom Trail, you should definitely go and learn about Paul Revere. We love going thru the house and hearing about what people did before. Our tour guide was very informative. The tour was short and sweet.

A friend and I paid and toured this little house. It's orientation has changed and the entrance is now off of a different street than it was back in the 1970's when I first saw this place from the other street. The house has docents posted throughout who answer questions and are well versed with basic knowledge about the house,... More

Saved from wreckage, this carefully restored home was restored by descendants of Paul Revere. It has a history all its own, and was old even when Revere owned it. It is worth a visit, but other sites may be more interesting from a historical standpoint. Architecture and historic preservation fans will find it most interesting

Superb glimpse of history alive! Set in authentic period, easily navigated and wonderful staff. The most challenging thing will be navigating to it.

My family and I visited this location one afternoon, and it was neat. The house itself has been restored, but a few remnants of the original wallpaper remain. There also exists a few displays containing items belonging to the Revere family. The interpreters were friendly and informative, and the exhibits provided information about all owners of the house up to... More

We recently toured the home on a misty day in Boston. This is a self-guided walk through of the home although "tour guides" were on hand to answer questions. It would have been more enjoyable if the guides would have offered more commentary as we went through the house. But, I felt they were there more for security than anything... More

The Freedom Trail passes right past the Paul Revere House and offers a fantastic glimpse of life in the colonial era. Whilst the architecture is underwhelming (noting it was a somewhat normal house during its time), the Paul Revere House is preserved in fantastic condition and is absolutely worth a visit.

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.
