This building is totally not worth the admission fee. I'd recommend saving the money and buying a good book about the freedom trail. You would gain a lot more information. The tour guides aren't very good and there is cheap signage.

This was one stop on our Boston trip we didn't want miss! The tour was full of history! The guide definately her history! Listening to the story you could envision yourself right in the middle of the massacre. Beautiful building kept in immaculate shape.

Awesome stop on the freedom trail. Be sure to head indoors for the gift shop and tour.

Such an incredibly, preserved physical presence smack dab in the heart of one of our great cities. Looking for a way to lose yourself in early American history for a winter afternoon? You've come to the right place. You move from room-to-room, with the exhibits presented in excellent proportion, so you don't feel your brain getting crammed with too much too quickly. If you're like me, you forgot much of what you learned in grade school about the events leading up to the American Revolution, with just a few touchstones still available for you to ponder over . . . The Boston Tea Party . . . The Boston Massacre . . . Paul Revere's Ride . . . The Old State House fills in all the blanks, all the precursors to these momentous events in an even-handed, but still thoroughly patriotic manner. There are artifacts, there are placards of explication. All seem gauged to engage but never have you peering over your shoulder to count how many more rooms there are to go through. Because you're going to want to go through them all. You would question your citizenship if you didn't, so attractively aesthetically and intellectually are the presentations. And once you've soaked all this in and become far more culturally literate about American history than you were before you stepped inside, you can step outside, immediately outside and plant your feet on that notorious / celebrated piece of earth where the Massacre occurred. Wow! In every regard. One of the signature stops on any history enthusiast's tracking of early American history.

Must see when doing the Freedom Trail. I did not do the museum, but this piece of history is beautiful from the outside. I find the clash of styles with the modern buildings surrounding it quite beautiful.

I'm in love with this building, the angle it's at and the location in the city, as well as its golden eagles on both sides.
