The Boston Massacre was a confrontation on March 5, 1770, in which British soldiers shot and killed several people while being harassed by a mob in Boston. The event was heavily publicized by leading Patriots such as Paul Revere and Samuel Adams. British troops had been stationed in the Province of Massachusetts Bay since 1768 in order to support crown-appointed officials and to enforce unpopular Parliamentary legislation.

Worth the $10 tour. We had the best tour guide! She made the history come to life as she explained the history leading up to the Boston Massacre and the Revolutionary War.

Good history never a massacre. More of a mild falling out

When I visited the Boston Massacre site, I was astounded at seeing the place where such a crucial event in American history happened, that ultimately led to the Revolutionary War. Very inspiring- must stop by when you get a chance!

One of the important stops on the Freedom Trail in Boston is the site of the Boston Massacre that took place just outside the Old State House on 5 March 1770. Many consider this event to be a catalyst for the eventual American Revolution that saw the colonies formally part ties with the British Crown. The site is marked by a seal upon the location where British soldiers, being harassed by a mob, fired upon a crowd, killing 5 colonists. There are plenty of opportunities to learn about this monumental event in American history as you make your thought the Freedom Trail attractions in Boston. However, at this location, you simply see the seal marking the location of the event. You can conveniently take in a viewing of the seal and location in a couple minutes before going onward into the Old State House or over to Faneuil Hall depending on which directly you are going as part of your Freedom Trail visits go. As such, it is an easy sight to take in if you are sightseeing in the area.

The Boston Massacre site is marked by a stone and metal inlay in the sidewalk. It's amazing to think that this exact spot marked the first event in a sequence that created the United States of America! It's along the Freedom Trail, so don't forget to stop by if you're walking the trail.

There is only some brick work to commemorate the massacre. The building next to it is a museum that forms a long line pretty quickly. The convenient part is there is access to the T directly under the building.

Great historical site... with bunch of homeless sitting right next to it. It kinda ruins the tourist spot. However, from another perspective - it prevents crazy tourists from hoarding the area for photos.

This place is very cool. To think what happens here is amazing. The historic building is now a subway that I find curious.
