This is a place I have wanted to see ever since I was a little kid. This is very well maintained and a great stop on the Freedom Trail. The docents are very well informed and are re...
'Tis a cryin' shame his cousin's house wasn't open on Tuesday, when I went to tour this.. while my brother was hoofin' it, in search of 'the best pizza in Boston', and my folks were in food coma after Mike's Pastry, I was able to tour his former home, an excellent example of a Colonial back in time. So admission was only $3.5, but the house tour will take literally about 10 mins... aww... What a strikingly unique Colonial home, occupied by Paul the silver/goldsmith cum foundry owner, community leader, entrepreneur, and bellmaker from 1770 to 1800.

The Paul Revere house is interesting, it is the oldest building in Boston, but it is small. If you're a local history buff, I am sure it would greatly fascinate you, I suppose I just expected more than what it was. Then again, it is not expensive to go in, but I expected a lot more. I think that the Witch House in Salem is a bit more interestin...
One of the more disappointing experiences. The house itself is about 4 rooms; while there are some memorabilia, it just feels like its needs a freshening up. It feels dated (obviously) but in a run-down kind of way. That said, for the 3 bucks, its worth a pop in if nothing else b...
