  • Purchased as part of the Boston Go card. Was a great perspective of the battle at Lexington from the Tavern. It is a self-guided audio tour with an interactive area upstairs that melds history with modern day social networking.

  • Awesome self guided tour. They do a great job making the history come alive! You can get a good deal on visiting all three museums which are within walkings distance of each other. We went there for memorial day and it did not disappoint; but I also just love history and it was so cool to be walking right through where it all happened. The staff are friendly, helpful, and informative. A great way to spend a day in Lexington!
