Simple yet worthwhile place to visit. Interesting placards and signs let you in on a unique historical perspective of both Boston and our colonial era. Won't take long to walk through it, but you'll leave with a greater appreciation of our nation's origin.
Good stop along the freedom trail. The church has a lot of history and the guides provide a nice overview. Believe it was $8 per person to get in. The church ‘boxes’ (see photo) were pretty interesting and overall worth the stop and was nice to take a break along the freedom trail. Nice bathrooms and friendly staff.
