|About these ratings|
For a peek at life in the late 1700s, head to Paul Revere's former residence on the Freedom Trail's North End. The house is a good example of how homes looked in Revere's time, and it's filled with period pieces, including fine silver. While history fans will enjoy getting up close and personal with a revolutionary figure, some reviewers were disappointed with the experience. One TripAdvisor user says: "I sort of want my money back on this one. … It was boring, small, and quick. 5-10 minutes tops."
Next door is the Pierce-Hichborn House, where relatives of Paul Revere lived. The Paul Revere House is self-guided; however, you must take a guided tour to see the Pierce-Hichborn House. There is a small fee for admission, but combination tickets are available.
