  • We loved this place!! It’s amazing to be able to visit the home of someone so important to our rich history. We squeezed in the visit at the last minute but so glad we did. The fee to get in is so nominal which is great as it gives everyone a chance to go, no matter your budget.
  • The Paul Revere House is really well done. It’s very well restored. And its exhibits are honest and informative, as are the volunteer guides. It correctly places Paul Revere within the context of his times, and it doesn’t exaggerate his importance. It is a worthy part of even the shortest visit to Boston.
  • One of the genuinely unique attractions along the Freedom Trail is the Paul Revere House. Built around 1680, this national landmark is the oldest standing structure in downtown Boston. This house is of lumber construction typical of the early colonial days. Within you can experience two floors with rooms decorated with period furnishing. Some of the upstairs pieces were owned by Paul Revere, the famous American patriot who lived here from 1770-1800. Unfortunately, photography isn't allowed within this attraction. We greatly enjoyed seeing the various rooms of the Paul Revere House and appreciated the onsite staff who provided very useful commentary and patiently described the rooms and their furniture. Some of the stories behind the furniture pieces were very interesting to hear, adding greatly to the perspective of what it was like to live during those times. Paul Revere House is quite small so if you are in a hurry you can experience it in no more than 10 minutes or stick around for twice that if you are enjoying what you see and what the attendant has to say about this historic property. Note: At the Paul Revere House, you can buy a combo ticket ($16 per adult) that includes entrance into the Old South Meeting Hall and the Old State House, giving you a $3 savings compared to buying each ticket individually.
  • This is a really cool historical place to visit. The house is quite small and pretty much all of it was "restored", so you won't be looking at the real, original dwellings of Paul Revere- just a replica of it. However, it is his actual house, and if you're in Boston and interested in American History, you should check it out.
  • My review is based on the perspective of someone who isn't a huge history buff and just was walking around town and paid $5 to check it out. I was there for maybe 3 minutes. You walk in. You see his house. You ask questions. You leave. I guess the coolest part about it is Paul's house is still standing there. Pretty cool. But for me I think seeing it from outside was enough.
