The Paul Revere House 42.3637° N -71.0537° W

Description

The Paul Revere Memorial Association actively preserves and interprets two of Boston’s oldest homes. We provide our increasingly diverse audience with remarkable educational experiences based on historical issues and social history themes relevant to our site, our neighborhood, and Boston from the 17th through the early 20th century.


Lunch Notes

The best spots for a picnic lunch are Christopher Columbus Park on the waterfront or the Paul Revere Mall, halfway between the Revere House and Old North Church. This brick plaza features the Paul Revere statue and benches around the periphery. If you prefer to buy lunch, consider going to Quincy Market – vendors in the central hall offer a wide variety of inexpensive and gourmet fast foods.

Bathroom Notes

The museum has limited restroom facilities for groups. There are two accessible, family-style restrooms in the public areas of the Visitor Center. To avoid long waits, groups should take advantage of larger public facilities at the National Park Visitor Center in Faneuil Hall. If you must plan a break at our site you should budget additional time at the end of your program.

Cancellation Policy

While we do not take deposits, and therefore you can cancel with no penalty, we ask that you inform us of your cancellation as soon as possible for our site planning purposes. Groups who have prepaid will not receive a refund.
