  • Great place to go for a quick bit of history. A must see when in Boston. Great insight into what our founding fathers went through and lived like. The tour guides are helpful and knowledgeable. It's a great way to spend an hour or two especially when you need to get out of the cold. Donations get you inside so dig deep and help keep the house standing.
  • This was a cool visit, but I was starting to get annoyed with paying to get into all of these historical sites. It’s not a lot, and I’m sure the upkeep on a 300 year old building isn’t cheap, but there isn’t much to see here and the guides aren’t very friendly or informative. You certainly can admire the outside and save yourself a few bucks to buy some beers!
