  • It’s definitely worth looking at the outside and reading about it. The interior tour with an audio tour is interesting, but only takes about 30 minutes. So you have to weigh whether it’s worth $10...  more »
  • Purchased as part of the Boston Go card. Was a great perspective of the battle at Lexington from the Tavern. It is a self-guided audio tour with an interactive area upstairs that melds history with modern day social networking. My youngest (9) was done with the audio tour by the final room (#5), but had a blast upstairs. Overall it was lots of fun. I would definitely suggest using the Go card.
  • Awesome self guided tour. They do a great job making the history come alive! You can get a good deal on visiting all three museums which are within walkings distance of each other. We went there for memorial day and it did not disappoint; but I also just love history and it was so cool to be walking right through where it all happened. The staff are friendly, helpful, and informative. A great way to spend a day in Lexington!
