The area
Address
Neighbourhood: North End
Wandering around Boston’s North End can feel like being transported to Europe. Stroll down Hanover and Salem streets for the finest Italian restaurants, bakeries, cafes, and a few boutique shops. Take part in the big debate as to whether Modern Pastry or Mike’s serves a better cannoli. Before your food coma sets in, make sure to stop by historic Paul Revere’s home, and follow the Freedom Trail to Old North Church and Copp’s Hill Burying Ground. Take a rest in a cafe on Hanover street and observe the quirky, European character of the North End.

    Best site along the Trail
    Post Covid, it seems like access to historical sites in Boston has been hampered by staffing issues and a litany of bureaucratic reasons to not let the younger generation access historical sites. Churches were closed or steep prices were put in place for a 10-minute walkthrough at some sites. The hosts at the Revere site were gracious and informative, however. The North end of the Freedom Trail with the Revere site was the best and most legitimate leg of our trip along the Trail. This area of Boston is still real deal — it has not been overrun with high rises or high end restaurants smashed in between buildings of historical significance. Walk around the area, you gain an understanding of the profound, evolving impact that immigration has had in Boston from Patriots to the Italians population.

    Just OK
    The house is only 4 rooms. Not much to see. The price is $6 for an adult and $1 for 17 and under which is good but you get what you pay for. I could have skipped it and kept our $12. No photos are aloud to be taken inside. Maybe so people don’t actually see what they are paying for?

    Big crowd, small house
    Learning the history of the Revere family and the home was interesting. No pictures allowed inside. My main complaint is the fact that no one regulates how many people are touring the home at a particular time. We walked up, purchased tickets, and were told go on in. Upon trying to open the door, we realized the front room was already full. This was the case for the entire home. Groups of families/tourists trying to see around the home, but all squished in tight like sardines.

    Educational and cute
    The Paul Revere House is not the most exciting historic house I've been to, but is reasonably priced for what it is. Interesting exhibit behind the actual house with more about Paul Revere's famous ride. They have part of his dentures on display here which was odd but cool?

    Worth a visit.
    A good compliment to other sights and places on the Freedom Trail. Unlike other stops, there is an entrance fee….. and you do get value in return for your money. The Revere house has been restored and refurnished to replicate what times were like back in the late 1700’s. The emphasis wasn’t just on Paul Revere, but also about how people lived and recreating what life was like. The people that volunteered at the House were very knowledgeable and helpful. You end up spending a half hour there, but if you’re in the North End, if definitely worth your time.

    Reasonably priced.
    Only 6 dollars for adult. I always enjoy a walk back in time exploring historical buildings. I'm sure that this house was considered large for the time, but I couldn't imagine raising 16 kids in it! I also enjoyed seeing the Italian neighborhood.

    A must for History Nerds!
    If you are a huge history nerd like myself then you do not want to miss this place! It was very surreal standing in the house where of a man who played such a significant role in the American Revolution. There were guides in each part of the house who shared information about the rooms we were in which I personally enjoyed very much. The gift shop was small but sweet and there was a small museum as well with historical artifacts. This is not for everyone so I can see why some may find it boring, but it is truly a remarkable place to visit and appreciate.

    Small but worth a visit
    At only $6 to visit, this was the only paid-for attraction we went to in Boston. Small, but nicely restored over a hundred years ago, it is atmospheric and knowledgeable room guides bring the house and the Revere family to life. There is a tiny shop in which we found one of the nicest merchandising T-shirts we’ve seen anywhere. Well done to the people who run this historic attraction.

    Revere house 10/04
    Being a teenager during the US Bicentennial, my wife and I grew up learning about Paul Revere, Samuel Adams, John Hancock, and the Sons of Liberty. To actually stand in his house, walk the streets that those patriots walk is a dream come true. a trip every American should make

    Best house in Boston
    This house is a great place to visit if you’re in Boston, it’s beautifully preserved. It is small so depending when you go it may be a little cramped in places trying to read information or view items. Sadly when we visited there was torrential rain that day which dampened the visit somewhat but the guides inside know their history and despite the small size it’s packed with original features. Definitely add to your list if you’re in Boston.

Lovely setting. Lots of shops around the local area. Nice bakery just around the corner. Admission was a bit expensive I think but if you enjoy history then it's a must.
It's not particularly big so don't take long to walk around.

I mean, if you’re a history buff, you’re obviously coming here.

It literally takes 15 minutes to see the grounds, so at least stop by and peek in.

Your kids are going to be bored and wondering what you’re even doing there, but it’s so short winded, that they’ll be able to make it through no problem.

A must visit in my eyes.

North End location puts a traveler by great Italian dining. Be sure and make reservations. Don’t miss Bova 24-hour bakery after dinner.

We have walked by the Paul Revere House a lot of times but have never gone in. It was well worth the entrance fee and the forty minutes we spent inside. It is small but well done and interesting to see where Paul Revere lived. I recommend not ignoring it.

This is located one street over from Hanover street in the North End, sort of behind Modern Pastry. It is reported at the oldest standing structure in downtown Boston. The house is open for tours. You can see how Paul used to live. Outside across from the house is the Paul Revere Square. It has some interesting metal sculptures such as a house with a window looking down on the street as well as another one which is sort of a relief map of the North End. Very cool.

We liked the tour here a lot! No need to book in advance, just pay there ($6 per adult), and the tour guides were awesome, we learned a lot and asked questions. I liked the history part. We had to leave our stroller outside and carry our baby through, not a big deal.
In the end, the tour was really short, small house, which I didn't expect, but the courtyard is lovely and experience was great. Good part of the Freedom Trail.

The admission price is reasonable and there is a senior discount. The house is small. They don’t allow any pictures but you can buy postcards of the rooms in the gift shop. There are only four rooms to see. The closest parking is 2 blocks away and it is $23 for the day which is not for those that just want to see Paul Revere’s house. There is a small gift shop and exhibits there.
