  • It was kind of small and tight to walk around but cool factor is a 10.... History alone is terrific... Overall 5 stars
  • The price of entry was very fair at $5 per person. Tour was self guided - and they had knowledgeable tour guides available to answer any questions. Small gift shop was also available. Would recommend visiting this attraction before leaving Boston.
  • Historic site but the exhibits are quite underwhelming. For a man of Revere's stature, I was hoping to see an in-depth presentation of his life story and achievements, perhaps in a chronological fashion so that it's easy to follow. This presentation is typical of similar museums, such as the Hamilton Grange in New York, which is dedicated to Alexander Hamilton. And this is possible even with limited available space. I really hope they can curate a more comprehensive collection. I also do not understand why they don't allow pictures, again something that is allowed in many museums the world over.
  • Very neat place and the museum folks really knew EVERYTHING we asked them about. Very friendly and super interesting. I would highly recommend.
