Before You Arrive


The Paul Revere House is committed to operating as safely as possible.

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

Proof of Vaccination

Starting January 15, 2022 visitors will begin to be required to show proof of vaccination against COVID-19 to enter certain indoor spaces in Boston including all museums and indoor dining. K-12 School Field Trips are exempt from this requirement. Out of school groups, college, and adult groups are required to show proof of vaccination for entry into the museum. Employees are also required to have received their vaccines.

The requirement is age dependent and will be phased in over time:

January 15: People 12+ must show proof of one dose of vaccine

February 15: People 12+ must show proof of full vaccination

March 1: Children age 5-11 must show proof of one dose of vaccine; People age 12+ must show full proof of vaccination

May 1: People age 5+ must show proof of full vaccination

Verification can be done with:

  • A CDC Vaccination card
  • A copy or digital image of your CDC card
  • An image of another official immunization record
  • A City of Boston app or another COVID-19 vaccine verification app

Learn more about the city public health order at their website.


If anyone in your party is experiencing symptoms of COVID-19, or if you believe you may have been exposed to the virus, please do not visit at this time.


We continue to require masks for everyone inside the museum, regardless of vaccination status for the safety of visitors, especially children and those who are still completing their immunizations.

Disposable masks are available.

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

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.

Museum Shop

Visit our museum shop for books, reproductions, toys, and more. Selected items are available in our online shop.


Personal photos are only allowed in the outdoor Courtyard area but not inside the historic buildings. For commercial photography or filming, visit our News Room.


Accessible family restrooms are available on each floor of our Visitor Center. All restrooms have changing tables. There are also large public facilities nearby at the National Park Service Visitor Center in Faneuil Hall.

Strollers & Changing Tables

Paul Revere was the father of 16, so we welcome young children! Exhibit spaces cannot accommodate strollers. However, we have plenty of stroller parking space in our Courtyard. There are changing tables in each of our restrooms.


We have written information available in Arabic, Chinese, Dutch, English, French, German, Hebrew, Italian, Japanese, Polish, Portuguese, and Spanish.
