Owner description: The Paul Revere House is the home of legendary patriot Paul Revere, where he began the famous “Midnight Ride.” A rare example of 17th-century urban architecture, and a National Historic Landmark, it is the oldest remaining structure in downtown Boston, and the only home on the Freedom Trail. Historic rooms contain artifacts from Revere’s era, including Revere family furniture and documents. One room is furnished with artifacts from the time of the first owner. Exhibits in the Visitor Center include beautiful silver made in Revere's shop. Visit to discover the true story of the “Midnight Ride” and the man behind the myth.
Useful Information: Wheelchair access, Baby buggy parking

Though the house is small, the explanatory materials in each of the rooms is very informative. You will learn a lot not only about Revere's famous ride but also about his family life and economic endeavors (silversmith, maker of bells and cannons, etc.). Experience would benefit from a lecturer on hand, but still an enjoyable experience.

Nice visit, you are in 4 rooms. Then size of house that makes sense. The museum has some nice items to some made by Paul Revere. This is a quick tour, but there are people in house to ask questions. Worth visit just don't expect large experience. Cost is ok for what you get to see.

Wonderful historic house , well preserved, but the stairs were not wide and creaked a lot, and we could not take pictures, but it was nice to see all the artifacts . A must see!!.

Couldn't believe how small the house was considering how many kids they had. The small details, the chamber pot under the bed, the sampler on the wall, the cooking tools... Very interesting.

We visited the Paul Revere house outside of a Freedom Trail tour and it was difficult to find because of construction and it is squished between large buildings. Luckily we came across a postal worker who directed us to it.

There is no outside parking, so if you plan on doing this add it with other things you plan to do in Boston because the parking here is outrageous. We paid $42 for one day of parking.

Also, if you do visit purchase tickets through the GoCity card your way. By purchasing two activities or more you save 20% as of my post. With a family of 5 those savings add up.

With teens/children this takes under 30 minutes, so don’t pay full price or do as the only event in the day.

Definitely visit since it is a part of history.
