“Small but interesting tour”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 31, 2013

This is one of the attractions on the Freedom Trail in Boston. It is small but you can see the things that belonged to Paul Revere and where he lived. It has two floors that are open for people to see. You can't see the third floor where Paul Revere's children lived. You can do the whole tour in about 15 minutes. Overall a good place to see while on the Freedom Trail.

“A step back in time.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 31, 2013

We visited the Paul Revere House while walking the Freedom Trail in Boston. It was my first trip to Boston and this was high on my list to visit. It took us a minute to locate the house as it is on a street one block over from the Freedom Trail and that confused us for a moment. We asked a local person walking by and were then on our way. The square on which it is located has many architecturally interesting buildings. The house itself was plain wood and in surprisingly decent shape. I'm still not exactly sure of the floorplan, it was a bit convoluted and the floors themselves were a bit tilted - the house is not really Plumb. The personel in the house were very informative but there was no set "program" of information...only question/answer time - so come with questions about life at that time.

“Paul Revere's house”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 30, 2013

It was fun to see how people lived back in the 1700's. It was a minimal amount of money to tour the house so I am glad I went.

“Gotta a see it - but not much to see...”

One of those places, gotta bring the family and friends when they are visiting... But it seems shorter each time. I know, I know, a piece of history we need to preserve...

“A Quick Trip Back”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 14, 2013

The Revere House cost 3.50 per person when we went and we got there 45 minutes before closing. We were assured that we had plenty of time and we did. We did not have the crowds reported by some, but even four or five people in the same room can make it difficult to enjoy the room. The rooms are small. We went back for a second view on one of the rooms. I would suggest that those who have had a chance to view the cordoned off portions of the room step back or aside to enjoy other parties to allow others to view the items on display. This was a bit of a problem in the first room, the kitchen. Still the 4-5 room house is a treasure trove of history and our docents were quite engaged and knowledgeable. It is hard to imagine a large family in such a small house! Visiting in March, means it is less crowded but the surrounding buildings were closed.
