Brought my 13 year old daughter and 15 year old nephew on a walking tour of the Freedom trail. It was a beautiful day in Boston, and we really enjoyed the visit. Amazing to see Paul Reveres house, the kids loved it. Nothing like seeing something in person that the kids have learned about in history class. Highly recommend.

“The Paul Revere House”
Reviewed November 18, 2012

Oldest home still standing. Amazing how they lived in this period and the conveniences we take for granted today. Well worth the $3.50 admission that goes for the maintenance of this landmark.

“It's a piece of history....”
Reviewed November 11, 2012

....which is why the average and below-average reviews make me chuckle (and kind of annoy me). Paul Revere was not uber-wealthy. Did you expect he would live in a McMansion? Go the Nichols House if you desire a tour of a larger home. Yes, this is a small, unassuming piece of history in the North End. Grab some amazing lunch here in the area, which is one of Boston's best foodie areas, and then walk off that pasta by visiting spots along the Freedom Trail as well as this small home. $3.50 admission for an adult. The only drawback is that the home can get quite crowded as there is no guide at the door stationed specifically to keep the flow of people steady. I often felt rushed as I didn't want to take too much time in the rooms when there were dozens of people waiting behind me. That said, it is a fun 30 minute visit for a great price. Hang out in the courtyard after you visit the home. If you are in the North End, it's worth a 20-30 minute stop.

“Can't miss tis”
Reviewed November 10, 2012

A lot of history in a smallish house within steps of downtown Boston. Furnished inside gives you a good idea as to what life was like in 1770's. Highly recommended.
