The Paul Revere House reviews
This is an interesting place. I actually learned more about Paul Revere then I ever knew. He was actually pretty wealthy and married twice.. It was interesting to see how people lived back in the... more »
So much history in this house. It is the oldest still standing building in Boston. The tour was great and informative and only $5 for adults to get in. more »
This is one of the most famous, breathtaking places you will ever see. It was relatively small in comparison to today's homes which is just my size. I'd love to spend the night and enjoy a piece of history first hand. Everything was so peaceful here. When in Boston this should be at the top of your list.
For the senior discount it was good if you are looking for a "cool" place to venture into the past and discover what the history books might not have told ya as a child about the Paul Revere story... Interesting, very interesting... You'll have to go inside and read it for yourself to find out! The house itself was dressed in 1700's time period, which I love seeing what people used to cook with, sleep on, sit on etc. Unfortunately, the small theater wasn't open, so we missed out on seeing the real story. It was a small house but it had clean bathrooms and a nice water fountain to refill your canister. The gift shop was quaint and full of fun things, like the 1700's period giant playing cards for us seniors, or kids. Oh, did I mention is was air-conditioned!! That right there was worth the money to get in. Temperatures rose to the 90's that day and it was a nice cool spot to stop into.
