Really authentic feeling and something you want to see during your visit! It is also a good way to start your freedom trail walk!

I went shortly after it opened to avoid crowds and it was great! There is a lot of information to set the stage for historical exploration of the city. Also the gift shop is great.

Located on Boston’s Freedom Trail on Washington Street, this beautiful and elegantly restored red brick legislative and historic landmark, built in 1713 in the Georgian style, stands dwarfed among nearby skyscrapers in the financial district.

A good stop on the freedom trail with a focus on history. We enjoyed it without being overwhelmed. An historic building in the middle of the city.

This is very much a "traditional" , very dry museum. There is a fantastic range of artefacts, but their display does not effectively engage or reflect the significance of the building. This building holds such a unique place in American history it deserves better. I...More

I spent maybe 45 mins to an hour. But you can break off when you like or simply walk around yourself. Tour is worth it for information. No extra charge I remember.
