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.

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.
