Before You Arrive

Heath and Safety Guidelines

During a declared local or national health crisis, we follow all applicable CDC and local guidance related to social distancing, building capacity restriction, masking, and cleaning when required. This may include requiring or encouraging the use of masks particularly since our spaces are small and may be crowded; adhering to capacity restrictions that may increase wait times, and providing hand sanitizer stations.

We reserve the right to refuse admission or ask visitors to leave if they do not follow our health and safety guidelines.


We are committed to making the Paul Revere House welcoming to all. Visit our accessibility page for more information.

For information about ADA accommodations, contact Interpretation & Visitor Services Director, Kristin Peszka (617-523-2338 or and please identify yourself at the admissions window when you arrive.

Food and Drink

Food, drinks, and gum are only allowed in the outdoor Courtyard area, not inside the historic buildings. We do not have a picnic area, but there are several parks nearby.

There are many places to eat near the museum. The North End is a dining destination for Italian food, and there are restaurants, cafes, and bakery options on almost every block.


Due to the small size and popularity of the Paul Revere House, all groups must make reservations in order to ensure entry. Groups arriving without reservations may be turned away. Please see What We Offer for details.

Aside from groups, no advanced tickets or reservations are required to visit our site.


Cash is preferred—with cash, the full value of your ticket goes to supporting the museum!

There are ATMs on Hanover Street, one block away.

We also accept Amex, Visa, Mastercard, and Discover with a $10 minimum
