This is an amazing piece of history! The house is hundreds of years old yet well preserved, and a beautiful contrast to the more modern buildings around it. Tours are only a dollar if you are under 18, and 6 dollars otherwise. You get to walk through the house, seeing rooms decorated and set up as they would have been in the 1770s and 1680s. The antique furniture and artifacts are actually from the 1600s and 1700s and many belonged to the owners of this house. It's really cool to see, and you can learn a ton about anything there from the historical interpreters on site. No picture taking inside the house.
Such well kept history. Feels like you are there walking around the home with Revere Family. Wonderful Docents eager to take all Q&A were much appreciated. Enjoyed buying Boston Freedom Trail books and seeing original political propaganda/satire cartoons. We Americans have not changed much in showing our way of how we want events to be remembered, including retelling of Boston Massacre.
