    $3.50 adult admission worth it of you like seeing the insides of old houses. Only 4 rooms but you get a good sense of the style and scale of homes back in the 1700's.

    Paul Revere sold the house in 1800 and his great grandson bought it in 1902 to prevent demolition. It became one of the first historic house museum in the US.

    The Paul Revere House offers both a chance to learn about an important figure in American history and to see firsthand what life was like in a colonial household.

    Go during holiday time for one of their special events with musicians, apple cider, and strange old-timey baked goods.

    Affordable admission. Great to have guides in every room. Did you know the kitchen used to be in the basement? The Reveres moved it up, when they moved in.

    It’s only 4 rooms, but a great time capsule and worth the quick trip at the end of the freedom trail, and before the deliciousness of north end!

    This is a good quick historical site with knowledgable staff. The construction of the new Visitors Center hasn't hurt the experience.

    The oldest building in downtown Boston. Visit the colonial garden, a 900-pound bell, and a bolt from the USS Constitution. Admission is $3.50 for adults and $3 for students with a valid ID. Read more

    Very small so you don't need a ton of time. Also no photography allowed so leave your cameras at home. But a great historical landmark!

    Paul lived here with his 16(!) children. Due to his family size he qualified for an exception to quarter British troops. 90% of his home's structure is per its original design. Learn more via our blog Read more

    Cheap,small, museum. Easily, completed in under a half hour. Cool to see, and even better if a school group did not just arrive behind you.

    Don't expect too much! Cool, inexpensive historical site ($3.50/adult) but a short walk through with only a few things to read/look at.

    Starting from his home, Paul Revere set out on his famous midnight ride in 1775 to warn his compatriots that the British were coming. Built in 1680, it is one of the oldest houses in downtown Boston.

    Try not to go here when it is swarmed with tourists and/or school groups. Difficult to do that, I know, but its much better.

    For only $3.50, you can be smushed between a bunch of tourists in this cramped little house.
